Johnnie Thomas
Executive Chef

The first sign of Johnnie becoming a chef was when at an early age he "fixed" his mothers potato salad feeling that it could use more mustard, a lot more mustard. He got his start in Muncie, IN working for Jim Davis, the creator of Garfield. He then went to Johnson and Wales University in Norfolk, VA while spending his youth working in Palm Beach, South Hampton, and Indianapolis, where he met his lovely wife Marie. In 2006 Johnnie made the leap to Patrick O'Connell's, The Inn at Little Washington. Since living in the Northern VA area he has also worked for Chef Cathal Armstrong of Restaurant Eve and Chef Eric Ziebold of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. He started at Eventide a year ago last May and was promoted to Executive Chef in March of 2013.

The Odd Fellows, a fraternal order much like the Masons, constructed our building in 1925. They rented the first floor to retailers and held their meetings on the second floor. With no air conditioning in the 20's, the meeting room had large windows and extraordinarily high ceilings to help with summer heat. Our dining room takes advantage of this with dramatic 18ft tall drapes.

In 1949 there was a fire in the building. Offices on the second floor of the brick and masonry structure were gutted and the first floor sustained smoke and water damage. While constructing Eventide, great care was taken to salvage wood for future use. Much of this smoke-stained wood can now be seen in the first floor bar.
