Max and Felicia Trujillo are a power couple in the NC Food Scene, even though they've been in Raleigh for less than 5 years. When they moved from Los Angeles, Max became the GM of Midtown Grille, and Felicia had a 10-year wedding photography business. But Max was working 70-hour weeks, and Felicia was starting to get burnout from weddings, so they both decided to make a change. On the show, we talk about how they changed careers and being passionate about what you do in life.

Dear Restaurant Guru,

Recently my husband and I went to dinner with friends at a local restaurant, two of us ordered the same dish and both of us became violently ill within two hours of dinner.

She seated us at a two-top; five minutes later she seated two people to our right and another five minutes later two people on our left. We were crammed together yet there were several empty tables around us. It was a $100+ dinner, and the seating affected our experience. What can we do to make sure it doesn’t happen again?
