  1. Oh I can’t wait to listen to this! Total Daddy’s girl over here, so I love the relationship you have with your father (& the Nanz, of course <3 ), but also, as an ex-restaurant person, I'm so excited to listen to his experiences & especially excited for your question at 372: – as a somm on the younger side, I've def seen & worked this transition (& lotssssss of differing thoughts on it), needless to say, I can't wait to listen & hear his thoughts! x

  2. Loved this episode! Its apparent that you and Michael have a great relationship with your dad and its great to hear how you have been just as much as an influence in his business, has he has been for you. You guys touched on some great points in this episode and I thought everything was spot on. Especially the part about letting your customers do the marketing and social media for you. Setting the scene to draw people in, then keep them coming back with great food and great service. Really great tips!
