Twenty-two years ago today…

We almost forgot: Today is The Elephant Walk’s 22nd anniversary!
No, it’s not one of those landmark years but it feels noteworthy nonetheless. Yes, on August 20, 1991 – the day after Hurricane Bob – we opened our first restaurant in the basement of the old police station in Union Square, Somerville – the space that is now Precinct.
For those of us who’ve been around in the beginning, it does kind of boggle the mind. We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into: The four restaurants, the two “concepts” – including Carambola, which is now The Elephant Walk in Waltham – the cookbook, the hundreds of cooking classes….
But the real question we’d ALL love the answer to: How many hand-made spring rolls has it been over those 22 years? Now that’s a scary thought!
From all of us to all of you: THANK YOU for all your support for the past generation! We are deeply grateful for you giving us all jobs and helping us serve the rare and wonderful food of Cambodia to Greater Bostonians all this time. Stick with us and we’ll keep it up for a good many more years, too!
Thank you, very much.
