In theory, Charles Golson could retire as proprietor of Charlie’s L’etoile Verte (French for green star).
Daughter Margaret aptly manages the day-to-day operations. Son Palmer oversees the kitchen. The 32-year-old restaurant is an island landmark for lunch or dinner and has earned national and international accolades. Hundreds of diners rave about it on Urbanspoon and TripAdvisor and reservations are a necessity in season.
But it’s hard to see when the theory of retirement might ever become reality.
Golson is having way too much fun.
