  • Michael has put in over $1.2 million into the restaurant. Everything is riding on this place succeeding. If Michael and Kristin have to close the restaurant, he & his family will be financially ruined.
  • Michael is in over his head. He has borrowed $400,000 from the bank, $300,000 from his family and owes $100,000 in taxes. He needs to get La Coquille back on track or he will have to close the doors of this Long Island landmark.
