Al Biernat and Jim White

Al Biernat and Jim White

Ever wonder how restaurant proprietor Al Biernat got so good at remembering names of people who come into his establishment?  The answer is here, on today’s episode of “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKALnow.com.  Al and his team are celebrating 20 years of great food and service in Oak Lawn, and the debut of their beautiful new Al Biernat’s North on Spring Valley.  Al gives us his recipe for success in the restaurant business, and takes us back to how he got started.  It’s basically a short master’s course on how to run a great restaurant.  Welcome to the podcast devoted to introducing you to the men and women who make the eats and drinks you love.  You can catch all of our shows on VOKAL Media and on iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner…tell ’em reservations!
