On this week's episode of "What's Eric Eating," restaurateur Marcus Davis join CultureMap food editor Eric Sandler to discuss his career. Davis recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Breakfast Klub, his game-changing Midtown restaurant.

The conversation begins with Davis sharing how his parents inspired his love of food and passion for entertaining. From there, he describes the process of creating The Breakfast Klub from choosing its location on the border of Midtown, Montrose, and Third Ward to its menu that combines breakfast favorites from the East Coast, West Coast, and South.
To this day, Houstonians and visitors like up daily for signature items like the wings and waffle, fish and grits, and biscuits and gravy. Sandler asks Davis about maintaining a good experience for people who wait in the line, which can run down the block on nice days.
