Exclusive Interview With Danny Meyer: The Truth About The Restaurant Industry

The New York restaurant industry is the most competitive in the world. Restaurants close soon after they open and the variety of cuisine in the city is unmatched.

Danny Meyer has been at the top of the restaurant industry for over 25 years, founding and managing restaurants such as Eleven Madison Park, Union Square Cafe, Blue Smoke, and Shake Shack, among others. 

In this exclusive interview, Meyer tells us about:

  • How he got his start into the business (including an amazing story about his only time working the kitchen line!)
  • How Shake Shack has expanded from a park in New York all the way to Dubai
  • What it takes to be a successful restaurateur and how you can get into the industry
