As a kid growing up in Hudson, Pete Foster recalls the food scene in town being good, but not great. Fast forward many years later, and Pete's three restaurants — Barker's Bar & Grill, San Pedro Cafe, and Pedro's Pizza Lounge — have all played a big part in helping transform the restaurant scene downtown Hudson into something special. 

On this week's episode of St. Croix Stories, Pete and I sit down at the newly-rebranded Pedro's Pizza Lounge for a conversation about life as a proprietor of three restaurants (technically four, as Pete is also a shareholder of Tamarack Tap Room in Woodbury). Pete recalls his start working for Barker's before he was the owner, shares about the inspiration for the Caribbean theme of San Pedro Cafe,  talks about why he shifted from the tapas-style Pedro's del Este to open a pizza lounge, and much more.
