New York Stories: Danny Meyer

  • Thursday, March 5
  • 7 to 8:30 p.m.
  • Museum Auditorium

Celebrated restaurateur Danny Meyer, whose past and present portfolio includes classic New York City eateries such as Union Square Café, Eleven Madison Park, and Gramercy Tavern as well as the Shake Shack empire, shares his own 9/11 experience as a midtown resident and business owner. As chair of the Restaurant Committee for NYC & Company in 2001, Meyer spearheaded an industry-wide initiative to breathe life back into New York City’s restaurant culture; a dual mission to serve a devastated city and keep the industry afloat. Meyer reflects upon the impact of the attacks on New York City and the restorative role of restaurants as sites of community and connection.
