Before we take you on an underground culinary tour, you know the deal...listener questions in hour one, guest interview in hour two. This week we started the questions with Jennifer in Georgia. Jennifer was a bit shy about her situation...she's been investing for several years but isn't confident she's doing it the right way and wanted some advice to help take her game plan to the next level. It was a good call...probably a question that many other listeners have...so thanks to Jennifer for be being brave and joining us. Feb 11 JOM Hour One
Hour two was a bit of a curve ball for us. I'm still not sure how or why Mark initially booked Damian Mogavero but I'm glad he did. It was a lot of fun and combines two of my favorite topics: data and dining out.
Damian is the author of The Underground Culinary Tour, a recently released book that's a behind-the-scenes narrative about how the restaurant industry, historically run by gut and intuition, is being transformed by the use of data.
Chefs, and some bold-faced ones, like Danny Meyer, Daniel Boulud and Giada De Laurentiis, have embraced the use of data to help them do everything more nimbly and efficiently. From the recipes they create to the wines and craft beers they stock, from the presentations they choreograph to the customized training they give their servers, the use of data is making their restaurants more popular and profitable than ever before.
It was a unique and fun interview that I think you'll enjoy. As you head out to dinner this weekend, you may have a different perspective when you take a seat in the restaurant.
P.S. We have a new podcast! It's called Better Off and it's sponsored by Betterment. It's similar to the radio show yet a bit different. We'd love hear your feedback! You can download it via iTunes, Spotify or Google Play. If possible, please leave a rating and/or review in iTunes.
