Meet The Staff: An Interview with Owner Andy Ganick

Andy Ganick knows a thing or two about restaurants. He owns two (The Berkshire, The Pig & The Sprout), and loves trying out new spots whenever he gets a night off (which he admits hasn’t been too often since opening The Pig & The Sprout last year). I snagged him during a lull between lunch and dinner service and peppered him with questions about his favorite menu item, the hardest thing about owning a restaurant and that time he saved a customer’s life.

What a showing! The staff dressed up. The guests dressed up. There was music, and mayhem, and a whole lotta shots. And hey, it was all for an amazin
