Today, Chef Joshua Harmon announced that he had officially parted ways with Junction Craft Kitchen. Now, it appears as if he’s decided to stay in his role.

Harmon announced his departure in a lengthy Instagram post today, saying that the restaurant plans to focus on “more of a neighborhood bar driven menu.” “We tried to do things that even made us scratch our heads,” Harmon wrote. “But If I’m not making you think while you eat then I failed you. I failed me and my team. It would not make sense to cook the way we cook and not push for that void. With that being said, I am stepping down from my position at Junction.”

Update, 3:02 p.m.: The post has since been deleted on Instagram (below is a screenshot of the original post). A representative for Junction Craft Kitchen tells Eater that Harmon is not leaving the restaurant, but that he will take a month-long consulting gig with an “out of town restaurant group.” Meanwhile, when reached by online message and asked about the deletion, Harmon told Eater that he is “taking a step away to do something else.”
