Jay Hajj

Owner, Mike’s City Diner

Have just one conversation with Jay Hajj and you’ll realize he’s as down to earth as he is inspiring. If he looks familiar, that’s because you’ve probably seen him on the Food Network with Guy Fierri, read his cookbook, or tasted one of his meals at Mike’s City Diner.

Jay explains how he took Mike’s from a struggling restaurant when he bought it to an award winning diner in one of Boston’s best neighborhoods. He also explains his need to diversify what he does and why failing was so important when he started out.
