As a third generation restaurateur, Melody Stein has always had the language of food coursing through her veins. While opening her own restaurant one day seemed like a natural progression, she soon found there was a long road ahead of her, as she was denied acceptance to culinary school because of her Deafness. But that didn’t stop her. She went on to get her degree in Hospitality Management, met her pizza-loving husband Russ, who is also Deaf, and they went to work.
