    Wow... absolutely amazing! The whole team is working like a well oiled machine! And Doug with Jane are like dad and mom in the kitchen. Jenny, a strict mom who overlooks everything and controls who’s doing what while working herself and Doug is a dad who helps around and hands people snacks all the time 😁

    This is a lot of hard work. I would like to see a follow up on how they balance this with their personal lives outside the restaurant eg do they have kids, is this seven days a week, what does their spouse do if married? God bless them this is inspiring but I also hope they are able to foster meaningful relationships outside of the resty
