ROAR NY

I am the Executive Director of ROAR NY, a community of hospitality leaders advocating for New York City's independent restaurant community and creating a path to a sustainable future. Our mission includes robust legislative and policy-based  initiatives including reforming wage structure, industry operating standards, and health and wellness for restaurant workers. I'd love to tell you more! Reach out below. 

WRITING

I’ve been a journalist for twenty years, covering the intersection of food, business, law and policy for publications such as The New York Times, New York Magazine, Eater and Food & Wine.

​I also run Strong Writing, a full-service copywriting studio for restaurant, hospitality, and food & beverage businesses.

My cookbook with Akhtar Nawab entitled Good For You, is out now from Chronicle.

THE STRONG BUZZ

If you've been around a while, you remember The Strong Buzz, the pioneering food blog I started in 2003. In April 2020, I decided to bring it back. You'll find it full of honest, trustworthy reporting about restaurants, food, policy and more.
