So in my quest to fully answer the question, I dine at local eateries, taking note of the type of cuisine on the menu, evaluating the quality of the ingredients, presentation, and flavors, discerning how I feel about the restaurant's atmosphere and decor, and observing the level and consistency of service they provide.
What I usually discover is very useful and informative, especially when it comes to writing restaurant reviews. But the critique is only a small piece of the puzzle.
Out of this realization, the idea for Inside the Restaurateur was born. Producing this video series satisfies my curiosity to hear the other half of the story. It's also my way to share what I learn about owning and operating a competitive restaurant... wisdom that can only be found inside the minds of the restaurateurs themselves.
Inside the Restaurateur features some of the most prosperous restaurateurs in the Treasure Valley.
