Owners of renowned NYC restaurants shed light on the hidden battles they are still facing.

For over a year, the restaurant industry has been spinning its plates in anticipation of a federal relief plan that would help restaurant owners save their businesses and recoup their losses.

Join us as we delve into some of the issues that are still keeping New York City restaurant owners up at night, and how their roles have evolved to address industrywide challenges head on.
