Meet the Rest of the Clan
The Shines you know, Mike, Chris, and Colin, our Chef, come from the now very large Shine Clan which spread worldwide in the last two centuries. The restaurant name and brand are a loving "nod" to both of them -- Michael's great-grandfather Francis (Frank) Shine, the patriarch of the Limerick County, Ireland Clan and Frank ("Father Frank") Shine, a beloved Uncle, a very special personality and a man of the cloth. Frances sent two of his sons, Tom and Michael, to America in the early 19th century, and the American Shines were born -- living, loving and prospering in both the Kansas City and Dallas metro areas.
