After founding and operating the restaurant company, Flat Top Grill, for 15 years, Keene and Megan Addington merged with another organization in 2009 and looked to our next adventure. They jumped into the car with their then 5 year old son, and drove around the country with no schedule and no agenda. It was truly a special year for them—discovering and rediscovering so many interesting and beautiful parts of this great country, and in particular, the treasures of our National Parks.
During this journey, their next professional undertaking became clear. Tortoise Supper Club opened in the fall of 2012 inspired by the type of place that combined all the things they love in a restaurant. The best example of how they wanted the restaurant to feel is embodied in the scene from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” where Holly Go-Lightly’s cocktail party is stylish, sophisticated, and yet fun and energetic, but mostly warm and welcoming.
Keene still has a flip phone. He has never had a smart phone and he is proud of it. He is the kind of person that wants to talk instead of text, and he doesn’t care if he is following the latest trends. In a way, that equates to how the Addingtons feel about Tortoise, including our menus. Here you will find refined, American classics prepared with the highest quality ingredients from scratch.
