The Garnish: A Podcast for Restaurant People

Season 1, Episode 2: Deena Marlette of Branch Line & Eastern Standard

September 12, 2017

In this episode of The Garnish, we chatted with Deena Marlette, the General Manager of Branch Line in Watertown, MA. 

She told us about the power of mentorship, how it felt to leave behind a teaching career to pursue restaurant life full-time, why she staffed her restaurant with enthusiastic people with zero experience, and more.
