Now after reading the above statement, you might be thinking, “well thanks for the advice, give me a second as I jot down this restaurant that I will never visit.” And we wouldn’t blame you. Most people discover that Bar San Miguel is owned by Jim Cramer only after visiting the restaurant.

When most people hear the name Jim Cramer, a picture of an energetic TV guy springs to mind. However, there is more to Jim Cramer’s story. Cramer attended Harvard University and worked as a reporter upon graduation. After some years of aggressive reporting, Cramer decided to join law school. Naturally, his alma mater’s law school was his first choice. During his years at Harvard Law School, Cramer worked on the famous Claus von Bulow for Alan Dershowitz–whom he later termed as “supremely guilty”. It was during this time that Cramer started trading and recommending stocks, a path that ultimately led him to become a stockbroker at Goldman Sachs. After some years Jim Cramer started his own hedge fund. He is also the author of 7 best-selling books.
Cramer never knew that he loved hospitality until he opened Bar San Miguel. Cramer fell in love with this venture because he liked making breakfast for people on Sunday mornings. Before that, he was in the soloist TV profession, where the endless talk about money in front of the camera was leaving him cold. Jim Cramer and his wife committed their best effort to the restaurant and before long Bar, San Miguel became a success.
