Justin Guthrie has a new gig.
After more than five years at Kuller Restaurant Group, where he was working as director of operations, Guthrie is leaving to team up with Cedric Maupillier to open Convivial.
Guthrie will serve as general manager of the upcoming restaurant, and he'll handle the wine and cocktail program as well. "I never really realized how much I missed the bar until Cedric asked if I could design his list," Guthrie told Eater.
Convivial is slated to open in the City Market at O development in Shaw later this fall.
