"Owners Ben and Susie Roberts of the highly-regarded Undercurrent Restaurant are excited to announce Wes and Chris Wheeler will become partners of the restaurant January 1, 2015. The Wheeler brothers are familiar faces at the restaurant since they have both worked at Undercurrent for the past 6 years. Wes is Bar Manager and Chris is Sous-Chef to Chef Michael Harkenreader, who will remain the head chef.
“We are excited to have Chris and Wes join us as partners. They both have the enthusiasm and drive to continue the high quality of standards that everyone expects of the Undercurrent,” explains Roberts.
Listed as one of the “Top Ten Restaurants in Greensboro” by USA Today, Undercurrent Restaurant has consistently dominated the elegant dining restaurant scene in downtown Greensboro for more than 16 years. Local, sustainable ingredients from the prolific farms throughout the North Carolina Piedmont region direct Undercurrent’s seasonal menus, which offer a New American cuisine utilizing classical French techniques with global influence.
“The Undercurrent is everything you want in a family-run business, we are very excited to join Ben and Susie (Roberts) as not just business partners, but members of the Undercurrent family,” said Wes Wheeler. His brother, Chris, agrees, “We’re very grateful for the trust that Ben and Susie have placed in us, and I’m excited to learn all that we can from them in the coming years.”
The Wheelers plan to begin the transition into their new roles at Undercurrent Restaurant now and into 2015. Ben Roberts will stay in a supervisory role.
