Knight's Gambit

 

continued

When her father bought the bar and restaurant across from Vet's Park, he made all the kids co-owners-and once again put them on the front lines. "He opened on a Monday," Sherry recalls. "Fifteen minutes before opening, he called me and said, 'Where are you?' I said, 'What do you mean, where am I?' He said, 'You're waiting tables!' I said, 'I have two kids!'" But she went to work.

"Dad was always the boss," she explains. "Mom was, too."

Last year the family got to talking about updating the market. "I just happened to say in a conversation, 'That sounds fun,'" Sherry remembers. And when she returned from her trip, the fun began.

Fifty-seven years after Ray bought it, Knight's Market is still a nondescript gray box outshined by the mango yellow Big City Small World bakery across the street. There's no sign, just a frieze of tiny horse-head silhouettes. They're chess knights-the logo that Ray has used since the restaurant opened to tie the two businesses together.
