Michele Jones, whose exuberant good humor has infused the very soul of Pasture on East Grace Street, where she’s been both co-owner and general manager, is moving to Comfort at 200 W. Broad St.

Jones won Richmond magazine's Elby award for best front-of-the-house manager in 2014.

She’ll take over as managing partner and general manager. Both restaurants are also owned by Jason Alley. Chris Chandler, who opened the restaurant with Alley in 2002, will retain a minority share in the company.

“I'm so excited about this!” Jones said in a press release about the move. “I started working for Chris and Jason at Comfort over eight years ago and have always loved it. I can't wait to get started.”

And although Pasture will remain the same, she said in an email, “I'll be making some changes [at Comfort] down the road.”
