I had an awesome time at the Streetbird opening party last night! It was really amazing to have all my friends come out and see what I’ve been working so hard to put together. And of course, there was lots of delicious chicken.

Aside from celebrating the official opening of Streetbird Rotisserie, we were also helping MasterCard announce a brand new app that lets you order takeout and pay right from your phone: Qkr! with MasterPass. Part of my goal with Streetbird is to make good food accessible, and partnering with Qkr! makes that job even easier. As of last night, Streetbird is the first restaurant in the world to start using the app.

Thanks so much to everyone who made the night a huge success. If you haven’t had a chance to try Streetbird yet, I hope to see you in there soon, and don’t forget to download Qkr! here.

A Priceless Dinner at Ginny’s Supper Club

By admin | March 22, 2012


When you think of the word “priceless,” what comes to mind? To me, priceless is being able to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and making the most of it. The opening of a new restaurant or venue can always be priceless occasion, since as an owner of one, I know the feeling of finally being able to show and celebrate the payoff of hard work. The opening of our new downstairs, Ginny’s Supper Club, was no different and since so much work went into this great new venue, I knew I wanted to create a priceless opening for it.

Last Wednesday, I was able to do just that with a five-course feast hosted by MasterCard as a part of their “Priceless New York,” experiences. This event gave about 40 guests the opportunity to be one of the firsts to experience Ginny’s Supper Club for the first time. Talk about priceless! Read More

Yesterday I went on a city crawl like no other- a Street Food Truck Crawl! I joined MasterCard on their Priceless New York campaign as they begin to offer free lunch every Thursday for the next month in New York City. I got to join them a day before their complimentary food truck lunch kick-off for a food truck crawl of our own. I visited five great food trucks in Midtown along with a couple other food bloggers, Brian Hoffman from Midtown Lunch and Jamilah Lemieux from Frugivore Magazine. Some of my favorite food memories are from trying street food and food trucks around the world, and this food truck crawl was a great way for me to experience different types of food right in my own city.
