Barbara Sibley opened La Palapa on St Mark's place 20 years ago. She's been through a number of other crises over the years and always adapted. We now live in a different world and it's not a new normal, it's just new. Barbara has a positive and pragmatic approach and discusses the trials and tribulations of running a restaurant under the current pandemic. She's shifting everyday how to address the challenges and she approaches it all with a smile and just keeps going.

In March, HRN began producing all of our 35 weekly shows from our homes all around the country. It was hard work stepping away from our little recording studio, but we know that you rely on HRN to share resources and important stories from the world of food each week. It’s been a tough year for all of us, but right now HRN is asking for your help. Every dollar that listeners give to HRN provides essential support to keep our mics on. We've got some fresh new thank you gifts available, like our limited edition bandanas.
