It was only last week when Chef Omar of “O” So Good announced on the restaurant's Facebook page that he and his family were officially stepping away from the restaurant business.  This also meant the new partnership between Wileys and “O” So Good would end just shortly after opening the bar's kitchen a few weeks ago.

Despite leaving behind the “O” So Good restaurant and Wileys, Chef O hinted that his journey in the food industry was not over yet.  Now, Chef O's dream is still alive right here in Sioux Falls.
