Celebrity chef David Burke has opened and closed about 20 restaurants throughout his career. Between onerous regulations and wicked high rents, he openly talked with us about how hard it is to make it - and what restaurant owners need to do to succeed.
In his case, it meant partnering with a larger restaurant group. He teamed up with ESquared Hospitality back in April 2016 and has since opened BLT Prime by David Burke in the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C. and Tavern 62 by David Burke in NYC.
That's where we got to spend time with him. So listen in for more.
And if you want to know about all the fabulous food on the table, make sure you watch this previous video so you can properly salivate.
