How did the city’s restaurants evolve from eating dens to dining establishments—and from fads to fabulous? Chef Angie Mar, restaurant critic Mimi Sheraton, and former Food and Wine editor Dana Cowin join us for a robust conversation about New York restaurants—then and now—and discuss their unlikely friendship and lessons about amazing food. 

Angie Mar is the lauded chef of the Beatrice Inn, the edgy, underground Greenwich Village chophouse and former Prohibition-era speakeasy. Award-winning author and legendary food columnist Mimi Sheraton was the first female restaurant critic for the New York Times in the 1970s and ‘80s. Moderator Dana Cowin, former long-time editor-in-chief of Food and Wine magazine, is the chief creative officer at Chefs Club International and the creative mind behind the food radio program, Speaking Broadly.

Presented by the New-York Historical Society's Center for Women's History
