Saving the Restaurant

On Tuesday, February 15, SOMM TV is premiering, "Saving The Restaurant," which follows master sommelier and restaurant owner Bobby Stuckey during the pandemic lockdown as he tries to do his part to save the country’s restaurant industry. This story shows America’s service industry fighting for survival through restaurant closures, battling Congress, and more.

Stuckey is a well-known sommelier and owns a number of restaurants in Colorado. He’s also the co-founder of the IRC (Independent Restaurant Industry) which was involved with lobbying for The RESTAURANTS (“Real Economic Support That Acknowledges Unique Restaurant Assistance Needed To Survive”) Act, and ended up helping get the $28 billion industry aid package that kept many restaurants open.
