Everyone in the Boston restaurant industry seems to have something nice to say about Josh Childs, the beloved bartender-turned-restaurant-owner behind Trina’s Starlite Lounge, Audubon Boston, The Paddle Inn, and Parlor Sports, which pandemic-pivoted to Trina’s Snack Shack. We talk with Josh about the nostalgia he’s serving up at the snack shack, why transparency with his team is key, and how he’s thinking about getting through this winter.
