Eater Talks: What does it take to build a neighborhood restaurant?

Wednesday, March 4 — 6:30 - 8:00 p.m

For the last year and a half Eater has partnered with the Ace Hotel in cities including London, Chicago, and Los Angeles to host a restaurant and bar industry discussion series. We’re thrilled to be expanding to New York with our premiere topic: What does it take to build a neighborhood restaurant?

Panelists Moonlynn Tsai of Kopitiam, Eater Young Gun (`19) Libby Willis of MeMe’s Diner, and Ejhadji Cisse of Ponty Bistro will speak from experience, all having become integral parts of their neighborhoods — Lower East Side, Prospect Heights, Harlem respectively — not long after opening their doors.

Over the hour-long discussion and Q & A session moderated by Eater New York editor Serena Dai, our panelists will discuss what it means for them to truly embody that warm and inviting you-can-eat-here-every-day feeling.

This Eater New York x Ace Hotel discussion takes place on Wednesday, March 4 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m inside the Ace’s Liberty Hall, located in the basement. Tickets cost $40 and include one drink and a snack from the Breslin.
