A Detailed Look at The Building of a Top Tier Restaurant
24 November 2011 | by (boston mass. usa) – See all my reviews

An excellent review of this film is here on one of my fav review sites, DVD Verdict: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1778357/externalreviews

Chronicles the efforts of well respected and successful Manhattan restaurateur Danny Meyers, from 1998, when he began the process of building Tabla and 11 Madison Park, through their openings, and then 11 years later. Focuses as much on personnel choices and team work as on the business plan and day to day construction and permitting details. Nothing like the nasty shenanigans of Reality TV, this is an informative look at what it takes to build a successful high tiered restaurant, and all the efforts that go into providing us with some memorable meals and experiences.
