“I would love the opportunity to have creative direction for a whole [hotel] property. My sense of style and what I think is important is hard to navigate in some of those [hotel] licensing deals.” [14:00]

“Miami is known for nightlife action – people like to go out and party … people don’t like to get up and work. It’s always been like that and every chef in every town will complain about finding good people and the labor pool.” [26:00]

“Any good operator becomes a good teacher and becomes a good mentor.” [28:00]
