Our guest this week is Kevin Burke of Library Street, a newcomer on the Dublin restaurant scene that was recently named Best Newcomer at the Irish Restaurant Awards. Kevin spent some time working at the two Michelin-star Patrick Guillbaud early in his career before heading to London where he lived and worked for 8 years before returning home to Ireland.
We talk to Kevin about the inspiration behind Library Street, his time in London, and when he knew it was time to come home. We also chat about what goes into making a restaurant that will last, and relatedly, how important (and difficult) it is to keep staff happy. And, Max introduces the concept of the Bog & Thunder EGOT. Tune in to find out more!
