It’s a foodie’s dream job: owning and running your own restaurant. But the economic realities of the hyper-competitive restaurant business can be far from dreamy — even if your menu is top-notch. We talk to restaurateurs about the joys and struggles in a business where success is rare, failure is common and every shift is an adventure.

Guests

  • Gillian Clark Chef and Owner, General Store and Post Office Tavern
  • Ris Lacoste Owner and chef, Ris restaurant DC
  • Manny Hidalgo Executive Director, Latino Economic Development Corporation
