Earlier this year, The Express-Star sat down with Anthony to write a story about his pub for an upcoming edition of The Chronicles of Grady County. Anthony, a 27-year-old entrepreneur, was obviously excited to get his newest venture up and running.
“From the beginning we wanted to make this more than a restaurant,” Anthony said in his April interview. "We had family that told us the pub was up for sale, we moved up here and decided to take the leap.”
Since arriving in Grady County, Anthony said the residents have been nothing, but friendly.
"It's a very accepting community," Anthony said. "People have been calling from all over to ask when we are officially open."
As for the food that would have been served at the pub and grille, Anthony said he and his wife created the recipes together.
"I am a pretty good cook myself," Anthony said.
Sadly the public will may have to wait a little while before having the opportunity to taste the Anthony’s cuisine.
Not all is lost though, as Trevor and his wife have managed to find a silver lining in this tragedy that could allow them to put their dreams on hiatus instead of completely forgetting them.
“There’s actually a grill in Mustang very similar to ours that’s ready to go,” he said. “We are playing with the idea of building a small theatre in Tuttle too.”
Anthony said he has maintained the accounts with his food vendors, but doesn’t want to say anything for certain until insurance claims are finalized.
Until that time, Anthony said he and his wife have backgrounds in cosmetology and contract work to sustain them for a while.
One thing is for certain: the resilient pair have no plans to leave Tuttle.
