Scene Podcast: Talking Restaurants with Dining Editor Doug Trattner


This week, host Craig Lyndall talks with Scene Dining Editor Doug Trattner about Oak Barrel, Forage, new eats at the Jake, Winking Lizard's moves, Local West, and much more.

The duo also chats about the local cultural issues that arise when our favorite neighborhoods restaurants duplicate and transpose onto other parts of town. Does that dilute our dining scene's character?
