There’s a lot more to consider when re-opening your restaurant or business then just when the local government says it's ok to do so. Namely the health and safety of your staff and your family. Not to mention the logistics of converting your space for outdoor only dining.

Our guests today are Leah Cohen and Ben Byruch. Leah is the the chef/owner of Pig & Khao and Piggy Back Bar in NYC. Ben runs the operations for the business. Leah & Ben's business was not only impacted by COVID, but Leah also fell ill with COVID lost her father due to the virus.

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.
