I loved this episode. Passion runs deep in all restaurants, but the magic formula to creating a truly great restaurant can be elusive. Even more so when you take an established and iconic brand and turn it into something completely new.
Today, I’m speaking with Ms. Sylvie Gabriele who accomplished just that. She transformed her father’s 37 year old Los Angeles restaurant and re-branded it with her own vision in every way.
In fact along with other accolades, her new restaurant “Love & Salt”, was named “LA’s Best Restaurant Comeback Story” by Forbes Magazine.
We talk about the family legacy, the new vision, triumphs, experiments, key-learnings, best practices and the soul that goes into every dish.
This is how to open a restaurant folks! You just have to think about how you would create, sustain and elevate a new restaurant brand if you were starting over today. It all starts at the top.
Tune in to this episode of the Restaurant RockStars Podcast and prepare to be inspired. You’ll certainly feel the spirit that pervades the staff, the ambiance and the food at Love & Salt just as I did in speaking with Sylvie.
