Jeetan Khadka, co-owner of Nepali Kitchen and Bar — Burlington, is selling the business to his chef, he told Seven Days. After the New Year, the restaurant at 1130 North Avenue will reopen under the name Maya's Kitchen, owned and operated by Maya Gurung-Subba. She's a graduate of the Community Kitchen Academy, a program of the Vermont Foodbank, who has worked at Khadka's Burlington restaurant since he opened it with his uncle in June.

Khadka said he wants to focus his time and attention on the original Nepali Kitchen, in Essex, and on his growing family. He and his wife have a 2.5-month-old son.
