SOBE '09

2009_02_sobe_conant.jpgA panel discussion this afternoon at Sobe tackled the topic of making and sustaining successful restaurants—and the fine line between good and bad ideas. The talk, titled "Lightening in a Bottle," was led by Daily Candy's Pavia Rosati, with panelists Scott Conant, Gail Simmons, PR woman Becca Parrish and Hill Country's Marc Glosserman. After dialogue that emphasized customer service, value and brand authenticity, a member of the audience asked, How do you know when to call it quits? Parrish: "For me, when you walk into a restaurant and you hear Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Ooh That Smell" playing in your head? Then it's time to bail." [SobeWire]
