This week on Eating Disorder, hosts Crazy Legs Conti and The Rev Spyro kick off the show reminding everyone to think about “Where’s Pauldo” before Crazy Legs delves into the highlight of his week. Guest Jim Chu, restauranteur extraordinaire responsible for New York destinations Jo’s and White Rabbit, tells the guys exactly how he came up through the industry in the city in the 1990s. Jim shares his experiences during this time opening and working in bars located in seedy NYC neighborhoods and how he managed to survive. He goes in depth with the details surrounding the many iterations of his bars, notably the now closed airplane themed bar Idlewild. This program was brought to you by Roberta’s Pizza.
“Curiously enough, after 9/11, having an airplane themed bar – less awesome than on 9/10.” [29:00]
