Thank You 2013!!

2013 has been a fantastic year for Gastronomista!  It's been a year full of boozy adventures, new friendships, and countless cocktails.

This year Gastronomista was nominated for Saveur Best Cocktail Blog, was selected as a Drink Blog of the Day from Foodista, and WON the Best Drinks Blog category from Friends Eat!!!!!


I was featured in Company Magazine's weekly app, Coolhunting, Birch Box, and was able to travel to experience cocktail festivals, distilleries, and some of the best parties on earth

I am deeply humbled that so many people love Gastronomista and have taken the time to acknowledge it so publicly.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting Gastronomista.  This website is a labor of love, and it is your support (and lovely emails and messages) that keep me going.

On a personal note, 2013 has been a huge year.  I've completed my first architectural project from start to finish - Gotham West Market opened in Hells Kitchen this fall to rave reviews.

I was photographed by the legendary Bill Cunningham for the New York Times Style Section, an honor to be photographed by such an incredible and amazing man.

Finally, I walked down the aisle in September and married the most amazing man, who thankfully is willing to taste all of my cocktails during "recipe testing". 

Thank you for reading and supporting Gastronomista.  I'm looking forward to an even more exciting 2014!  Cheers!
