Some big changes are underway behind the scenes at The Slow Bone today. The Design District restaurant founded by Jack Perkins and partner Austen Wright a little over three years ago quietly changed hands on Thursday evening. D Magazine reports that Perkins and Wright have accepted an offer for an undisclosed amount from Eatzi’s co-founder Jerry Meyer and company CEO Adam Romo to purchase the popular meat destination.

Pitmaster Jeffery Hobbs, who joined the restaurant in 2014, and catering director Anne Oliver Lewis will stay on to helm the restaurant. Lewis says that she and Hobbs have ideas for a few additions but otherwise it will be delicious, smoked business as usual:

Jeffery and I have no plans to move it or change very much. We might put in a patio and a designated to-go window. We will always be one store.

For his part, Perkins jokes that the restaurant’s new ownership should see an increase in sales in his absence. “They should get a minimum 10 percent sales increase from the people that wouldn’t come because I’m an asshole.”
