Demo Kitchen: Roundtable with Roar - Reimagining Hospitality
Established at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, ROAR’s (Restaurants Organizing, Advocating & Rebuilding) community of hospitality leaders come together to advocate for restaurant workers and owners in New York City. Starting this fall, the Demo Kitchen at Ace Hotel Brooklyn welcomes ROAR for a series of conversations around the changing restaurant landscape and a vision for a more sustainable future.
On October 8th, join veteran food journalist Andrea Strong, now Executive Director of ROAR, in conversation with leaders of this new hospitality-driven social impact movement. The panel will shine a light on innovative nonprofit organizations and operators who are bringing community into the hospitality industry. Panelists include Terrence Tubirdy and Jeff Brosi of The Rockaway Hotel, Beatrice Stein, founder of the non profit The Hospitality Project, and Chris Means of By All Means Leadership Academy in a conversation about how to reimagine hospitality, not just a place for brilliant food and wine, but as an industry creating sustainable change in communities and lives.
