Episode 106: Burgers, Beer, and Rock & Roll

Ken Friedman used to book some of the hottest bands in the Bay Area--until he decided he wanted to open a restaurant instead. Turns out he was pretty good at that, too. Now Ken owns a slew of restaurants in New York including The Spotted Pig, John Dory Oyster Bar, Salvation Taco, White Gold, and more. In this week's episode, he talks about his vision for an English gastropub with actually good food (thanks to chef April Bloomfield), how he got some of the music industry's biggest names to invest in that vision, and drinking beer with U2.
