From our organizers:
The womxn leading our favorite New York restaurants are giving us more than one reason to dine out. Beyond delicious fare, they are “running restaurants that celebrate otherness” and have “created something with the essence of [their] homeland to share with their new home.”
And they won’t settle for just any seat at the table —they’re taking the head.
Join pineapple NY with Kia Damon, head chef at Lalito, Simone Tong, chef-owner of Little Tong Noodle Shop, Samantha Safer, co-owner of Otway and moderator Khushbu Shah, senior food editor at Thrillist, to celebrate these chefs’ multi-faceted culinary visions.
We’ll get real about everything from how to creatively and equitably fund, build and grow food businesses in 2019 to cleansing the back-of-house of toxic masculinity, plus what it takes to shatter the glass ceiling while bringing other womxn with you.
