It’s Episode 9 of the Date Night with Jake & Page podcast, where each month we double-date over mics and drinks with a prominent Queen City couple. In this episode you’ll hear from Chef Alyssa and Andrew Wilen!

If you live in Charlotte there’s a 98% chance you’ve been to Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen in South End. First dates, corporate retreats, you name it, the Kitchen is an awesome spot, and it’s run by one of Charlotte’s favorite couples.

Andrew (@andrewwilen) and Alyssa (@alyssacooks, @chefalyssaclt) talk about how they met, how they hatched the idea for their business, and they offered up a little teaser for listeners on what they’re up to next. Listen to find out more!
