Wag Wednesday: Saul Ramos & Leah

wag-wednesday

Since starting the blog, we’ve interviewed many members of the hospitality industry, and one constant among the interviewees has been a profound love for their pets.

Back in 2012, MC Kitchen first opened in the Design District. Three years later, this Italian eatery is still going strong while many of its neighbors have shuttered their doors.
