Today’s episode is all about community and we’re spending time in two of our favorite cities to celebrate! First up we’re in Chicago, sitting down with Jenner Tomaska (Executive Chef & Owner) and Katrina Bravo (Creative Director & Owner), who are on the precipice of opening their first restaurant, Esmé. They share their vision of changing the perception of fine dining, the plan for local philanthropy and how they will integrate themselves into their neighborhood, Lincoln Park. Their newborn son, Roman, also joins us for some spirited conversation!
Then we head to our headtown, Philadelphia, to chat with Mike McGuiness, who plays guitar in Rid of Me and runs Knife Hit Records. We chat about the pandemic's influence on their new EP, their future plans for shows and what goes into selecting the perfect cover song.
