What does it take to open a new restaurant? What about turning a bar into a full-service restaurant? This week we sit down with David Benowitz, the COO of Craft & Crew restaurant group who tells us just that. We talk about the recently announced restaurant slated to open next year in St. Louis Park called The Block. But we also talk about how he got started in the restaurant business, how dogs have become one of the unique parts of their business, and how trusting his managers has led to important innovations in the way they do business, in this week’s Who The Folk Podcast.
