From tragic fire to hope for the future: A candid conversation with Barkha and Jesse Daily of The Cheel
2020 was a terrible year for many bars and restaurants. But it was a particularly challenging one for Chef Barkha Limbu Daily and Jesse Daily, owners of the cheel, a popular Nepalese restaurant, who found themselves watching helplessly as the restaurant they’d poured seven years into building burned to the ground before their very eyes.
In this week’s podcast, we chat with the Dailys, both of whom share their experiences from that fateful day, including the thoughts that raced through their minds in the moment and the feelings they’ve been parsing ever since. Along the way, we also discuss their new venture, Daily Taco + Cantina, the vision behind the new Mexican concept and their hope for the future.
