Eater Talks | How Restaurateurs Innovated Their Way Through 2020

On Monday, December 14, four restaurateurs from across the U.S. share the challenges they faced in 2020

Eater Talks: How Restaurateurs Innovated Their Way Through 2020

December 14 — 1:30 p.m. ET / 10:30 a.m. PT

For restaurants, the consequences of the pandemic were immediate — and therefore so was the need to “pivot,” that cliched catchphrase of 2020. Amid capacity restrictions, kinks in the supply chain, and full-on dining shutdowns, many of the creative minds behind the food and beverage businesses we love found inspiring ways to keep their doors open and customers fed.

On Monday, December 14, at 1:30 p.m. ET, we’ll hear from four restaurant pros on how they innovated their way through this unpredictable year. Learn how New York baker Natasha Pickowicz of dessert pop-up Never Ending Taste turned her wildly popular annual Planned Parenthood bake sale into a virtual fundraising venture, In Good Taste; how Lakana and Justin Trubiana, co-owners behind Austin Thai food truck Dee Dee, used online ordering to streamline every aspect of service; and how Dina Samson, co-owner of LA’s Rossoblu, has had her team reassess at every step of the way.

The conversation and Q+A, led by Eater cities editor Jesse Sparks, will take place over Zoom. Register below to secure a spot, receive a Zoom link prior to the event, and add the event to your calendar.
