Sixth & I
Dish & Tell: Food Entrepreneurs’ Recipes for Success
Hosted by Daniel Pink
If you live to eat, eat to live, or want to make a living feeding others, hear from Rose Previte—owner of Maydan and Compass Rose—and Chris Brady and Andrew Dana—co-owners of Timber Pizza—about their unexpected paths to becoming food entrepreneurs, lessons learned along the way, and tried-and-true advice for aspiring entrepreneurs. The conversation will be hosted by Daniel Pink, the author of several bestselling books about business, work, and behavior, including When, Drive, and To Sell Is Human.
Previte went from earning a Master’s Degree in Public Policy to launching celebrated restaurants inspired by her Lebanese roots and her travels across 30 countries. Maydan, a James Beard Award semi-finalist for Best New Restaurant in 2018, was recently named 2nd best restaurant in the country by Bon Apetit. Previte, one of Washingtonian’s “40 Under 40” top professionals to watch, is the host of WETA’s TV show “Check, Please! DC”
Brady and Dana left their jobs at a local tech company to pursue their passion for pizza, despite not knowing the first thing about it. They started out as a mobile, wood-fired oven pulled behind a 1967 Chevy truck, serving pizza at local farmers markets. Their brick-and-mortar location in Petworth, which opened in 2016, was named “Pizzeria of the Year” in 2017 by Bon Appetit and just made the 2018 Michelin Guide “Bib Gourmand” list. Dana is also set to launch Call Your Mother, a “Jew-ish” deli in Park View.
