Restauranteur Jeff LaPadula is one hardworking BADASS!! He went from working in the finance industry to scrubbing the floors of a cafe just so he could get his foot in the door of the restaurant industry.
He now co-owns Terri, a vegan fast-casual chain, and P.S. Kitchen, a brand new fine-dining restaurant that gives 100% of their profits to charities.
Some of the things we discuss are: the punk rock influence on his veganism, how he went from being an unemployed banker to co-owner of Terri, how P.S. Kitchen came to be, trials of opening up a fine dining restaurant and SO much more.
