Best celebrity guest: “Bill Murray is a personal friend of mine. We go back to our teenage years, and he’s a great guy: approachable and easygoing. I love having him at any of my restaurants.”

Customers’ favorite dish at Pork & Beans: “Sliders. I made them for the first time at Bill’s house, where we incorporated sausage with the beef. They’re phenomenal.”

Weirdest request: “Once, a customer asked for nothing green on the plate.”

Most unique cocktail: “Pomegranate Cosmopolitan with Pop Rocks on the rim of the glass. It’s a fun drink, and guests smile seeing it on the menu.”
