But in the case of Justin Tisdall, co-founder of Vancouver’s Juke Fried Chicken and Beetbox, his discerning palate is what set him apart from the beginning.
Before the casual comfort food and high-quality-takeout trend exploded, he and his business partners, chef Bryan Satterford and co-founder of Meat & Bread Cord Jarvie, opened Juke as a hybrid eatery that excelled in both, with a killer cocktail bar.
He began his career almost 20 years ago as a bartender to subsidize his competitive swimming on Canada’s national team, and he has approached each restaurant position since his first with a similar spirit.
The vision of an empty restaurant on a rainy day in February replayed in Tisdall’s mind and helped him to innovate and avoid the traditional challenges that most restaurateurs face.
Tisdall also used COVID as an opportunity to re-examine his whole business and says he has learned that doing more isn’t necessarily better.
Exclusively available at The Standard Grill, the hot dog is served with a lemon chive aioli and topped with a generous portion of caviar for $75, or paired with a mini bottle of Moët Chandon Imperial Brut for $99.
Outside The Standard Hotel in Manhattan's Meatpacking District The Standard “More than any slice of pizza, I’ve always been a fan of a New York City hot dog, whether it’s from a street cart or Gray’s Papaya, and I am always in support of a high-low pairing: champagne and fried chicken, Uni on a cheeseburger, you name it,” Weiss says of his inspiration for the Yacht Dog.
The Standard High Line, in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, has released the city’s first “Yacht Dog”, a gourmet take on the humble street food classic to support the local hospitality community.
The Standard Grill's Yacht Dog Thom Fortune The classic New York City hot dog was just given a luxe upgrade, in the name of charity, of course.
“My chef pal Kevin O’Connor has this same mentality, so we kicked around a few ideas before landing on a caviar hot dog, which we felt was a beautiful marriage of outlandish luxury and a classic New York City staple.
Princess Beatrice kept up with royal style practices this week as she headed out in London for dinner with a friend.
Spotted leaving the Connaught hotel on Thursday night, the royal family member showed off her chic sense of fashion in a velvet Maje dress; though the style has since sold out, it once sold for $315 on the brand’s website.
While the legwear may seem like an everyday move, it is actually a favorite of Queen Elizabeth; while bare legs may not be forbidden under royal protocol, it is considered respectful and proper to wear tights and legwear under shorter hems especially when around older members of the royal Beatrice leaves the Connaught hotel in London after dinner with a friend, Oct. 8.

At nighttime, Euljiro 4-ga in Seoul, long a home to craftsmen and hardware shops, takes on a wholly different look from the day.
Walking the streets in the area during the day, you can see a variety of small shops selling ironware, wood, tool supplies and household goods such as lighting and tiles, as well as craftsmen with decades of experience.
When night falls and the metal and acrylic shops pull down their shutters, the streets turn into galleries.
Lee Won-kyung, who organized the project, matched the workshop of a technical craftsman with artists to create an environment where people can encounter art by chance in their daily lives.
Inspired by the unique scenery of Euljiro 4-ga and the daily life of craftsmen, artists completed a total of 30 works.
As a condition of his release, West Seneca Town Justice Shannon Filbert ordered Lewinski to stay away from Sapienza’s widow, prohibited him from posting about the case on social media, barred him from entering bars or restaurants and prohibited him from possessing any guns.
Sapienza was disgruntled for multiple reasons, including that Lewinski’s son’s band was playing a show in the parking lot and had occupied the space Sapienza usually parked in, Covert said.
Covert, Lewinski’s attorney, called Sapienza’s death a tragedy, but said in an email to The Associated Press that “we received witness statements that make it very clear that the victim was the aggressor.”
Rocco Sapienza confronted Lewinski at a bar in West Seneca on Sept. 26 because he was not wearing a mask, Erie County prosecutors said Monday.
WEST SENECA, N.Y. (AP) — A New York bar patron accused of giving a fatal shove to an 80-year-old man during a confrontation about the need to wear a mask has pleaded not guilty to criminally negligent homicide.
The two brands are teaming up on a capsule collection of good-looking, endearingly kooky cycling gear for serious bikers and aspiring serious bikers alike.
It's a formula the fashion industry should look to more often when it comes dreaming up smash-hit collaborations, instead of chasing brand synergies that sound like they'd play well in a press release but look completely lifeless hanging in a mausoleum-like store or on, y'know, an actual person.
The collections reads less like something a few corporate honchos cooked up in a board room and more like the result of a partnership with a brand, as Rapha describes it, wholly "untrained" in the sport's traditions.
But the two brands are also shilling delightfully unhinged oxford-cloth button-downs and a few positively psychedelic long-sleeve tees, plus a whole host of gear so handsome it's begging to be worn off the bike.
The brand completely overhauled the entire fleet's racing gear—including everything from the team's bikes to the team's bibs—using the type of colorful, tongue-in-cheek iconography with which diehard fans of the skate label will be more than familiar.

(SWNS) Stephen Durand, 38, was meeting a woman for a romantic first date at a steak restaurant.
Durand apparently told his friend, Lee McIver, about the date, prompting his buddy to call the restaurant pretending to be Durand.

It’s not like the toilet paper was halfway across the room or necessitated some kind of Simone Biles-style gymnastic move like a front handspring, Arabian flip, with a half twist tear-a-square dismount.
It used to be that my biggest bathroom issue was sitting down and realizing there was no toilet paper.
No, the toilet paper was hung directly next to the toilet.
But when you throw your back out reaching for toilet paper, it’s not something you really want to advertise.
Since my husband wasn’t home, I started to wonder if I would be stuck in this position until he got back at the end of the day or if I was going to have to suck it up and called 911 so a bunch of hunky firemen could arrive, bust down my bathroom door, and carry me off the toilet.
He played Will, a fictionalized version of himself, who was sent from his home in Philadelphia to live with his wealthy aunt, uncle, cousins and their butler at their Bel-Air mansion after getting into a fight.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air originally aired on TV from September 1990 until May 1996 and was the show that launched Will Smith's career.
Airbnb says that during this 'royal overnight' guests will be virtually welcomed to the mansion by none other than DJ Jazzy Jeff himself.
Filming of interior scenes for the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air mainly took place on a Los Angeles sound-stage in pre-made sets – but the home used for the Airbnb stay, which is actually located in the posh neighborhood of Brentwood, near Bel-Air, was seen not only in the opening credits, but every time Will's best friend, Jazz (played by DJ Jazzy Jeff), was thrown out.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air mansion is being added to Airbnb's listings 30 years after Will Smith rolled up the driveway and knocked on the door of the iconic crib for the very first time.
