NYC Zagat 30 Under 30
ZAGAT’S 30 UNDER 30 events honored the top 30 people in the restaurant industry under 30. Honorees ranged from chefs to bar managers, food truck owners to ice cream makers. In each city, Zagat would take over an up-and-coming restaurant and throw a food & beverage focused party that promoted all of the best bites the city had to offer. In 2014 I traveled with Zagat to three different cities and helped design the spaces and activations for their events.
For the NYC event we took over Brooklyn’s ROYAL PALMS SHUFFLE BOARD CLUB. Inspired by the tropical drink menu, I created colorful floral arrangements in cored pineapples and table runners out of drink umbrellas. I also filled the space with large palm leaves and a water-inspired photo backdrop.
