Hotel restaurant abruptly closes

A restaurant in a Grand Junction hotel  has abruptly closed shortly after reopening under new managers.

Richard Tally, owner of the Quality Inn, announced the closure of Good Pastures Restaurant after a short-lived lease arrangement with Raul and Cathy Wolf, who left without notice.

The Tally family, which owns the Quality Inn as well as the Wine Country Inn in Palisade, had leased the newly remodeled restaurant to the Wolfs to concentrate on other aspects of their business.

“Needless to say, that was a surprising development,” Tally said of Wolfs’ departure. “Their lease agreement included providing breakfast service for our hotel guests.”

Within hours, Tally brought in former employees of Good Pastures to staff the kitchen and restaurant and prepare breakfast for guests.

“We won’t miss a beat. We will provide a deluxe hot breakfast for our hotel guests,” he said.

Although food service will be available for hotel guests only, Tally said Quality Inn will continue to accommodate meetings, teams and tour groups. The hotel could expand other guest services in the newly available space.
