Former The Pass & Provisions general manager Isaac Johnson is now the GM at modern, seasonal restaurant Triniti. Johnson tells Eater that he left P&P a couple months back and "took a break to deal with the loss of my grandmother and travel for a couple months." He is "very proud of what we accomplished" at P&P and wishes chef/owners Seth Siegel-Gardner and Terrence Gallivan "more of the same success they have enjoyed so far." As for his new role at Triniti, "I am excited about the plates that (chef) Ryan (Hildebrand) and (sous chef) Greg (Lowry) are putting out and look forward to building on the strong foundation and reputation that Triniti has established. As always, I will have an intense focus on the service, hospitality and profitability aspects of the restaurant."
Back in December, Eater profiled Johnson as part of the Gatekeepers series. He explained his signature bow tie as follows "It just represents, with the number of times I have to say no, there's a level of charm and hospitality that's required. Our level of hospitality has to be at the level of the greatest restaurants in the world." Diners should expect a similar level of service in his new role, even if Triniti's dining room isn't quite as packed as P&P frantic opening months.
