Founder Dinners

Connect with other smart, driven, and hungry people over a mouthwatering, healthy meal.

Breaking bread with other founders is one of the best ways to build community.

Being part of a community is good for your mental health, your physical health ... and it's great for business, too.

We meet at my place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, right on the water, with a magnificent view of the east side of Manhattan.

We cook together, and eat something healthy, such as wagyu ribeye, elk, short rib, or other quality protein, with a side of healthy veggies like celeriac, parsnip, broccoli rabe, Brussels sprouts, or whatever's in season right now.

I also have a full cocktail bar from when I got knee deep into mixology. Don't feel pressured to drink, but do feel free to help yourself to anything in my bar.

We'll typically be 5-10 people at a time.

You're welcome to bring a friend after we've met the first time. I'm always looking to expand my network of friends, and introductions is my favorite way to do that.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the questions people most frequently ask us:

Can I bring anything?

No need to bring anything. At all. Seriously. All I ask is that you bring yourself, and an open mind and heart.

If you do insist on bringing something, please no alcohol. I got way more than I'll ever get through.

A flower for my wife is always appreciated.

But, really, no need.

Can I bring a friend?

I love meeting friends of my friends. Generally the answer is going to be yes, once you and I have met in person for the first time. Just make sure I know so we have enough food.

How often do you do these?

It depends on my travel schedule.

Anywhere from once a week to once a month.

What kind of food do you serve?

Generally meat & veggies. I'm partial to wagyu beef and elk meat.

Absolutely no industrial seed oils, and you probably won't see a lot of sugar, or starchy carbs.

If you have special requests, let me know, and I'll see what I can do.
