Best friends and aspiring restaurateurs Billy Phelps and John McCormick attempt to open a New York City eatery as some of the city's best-known restaurateurs recall their own days of struggle in this documentary from filmmakers Kate Novak and Andrew Rossi. From financial crises to kitchen problems and issues that nearly derail the venture before doors even open for business, Phelps and McCormick keep the dream alive by converting an old check-cashing shop into a retro speakeasy.
