If you’ve gone by Stratford Hills Shopping Center and noticed that Max’s Positive Vibe Café is closed, you can rejoice instead of worry. The restaurant — which trains and employs people with disabilities in the food service industry — is closed for renovations. The kitchen is getting a makeover and the rest of the place will sport fresh new paint inside and out.
And the best news? Former Country Club of Virginia executive chef Gary Whitecotton is revamping Positive Vibe’s menu. (Whitecotton has been the man behind the food at Positive Vibe’s Coaches' Cook-Off event since its inception.) It’s kind of a big deal.
Look for the grand reopening on Aug. 7. And for more details throughout July, check Positive Vibe’s webpage for updates.
