This week, we return to our conversation with Nick Zukin of Mi Mero Mole, following the news last week that his restaurant in Old Town would be closing for good.

This episode was originally recorded April 20, 2020.

Nick Zukin chats with Chris about a tumultuous year for him as a restaurateur in Portland. Nick shares the heartbreak of losing $400,000 with the closing of his Mexican pizza concept, Zapapizza, after having been open for just months. If that wasn't enough, less than a month later he was forced to react to the upheaval caused by the Covid-19 pandemic at Mi Mero Mole, his popular spot in Old Town. Nick's very forthright viewpoints on how the government handled the crisis, and his ideas on how it could have been better, are quite interesting and thoughtful.
