As CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group, Meyer will share his unique insight from over 30 years in the New York City hospitality industry. Meyer is not only the founder of Shake Shack, the reimagined fast food restaurant that’s gone global, he’s the operator of some of New York’s most beloved restaurants, including the recently reopened Union Square Cafe and the iconic Gramercy Tavern. Meyer has also pioneered a no-tipping policy at many of his restaurants, a program that has seen great results so far.
Redzepi, founder and head chef of noma, will share discuss the creativity, innovation, and forward thinking that have earned him international acclaim. During its 14 years on the Copenhagen waterfront, noma changed the tourism landscape of its city and country, putting Denmark on the map as an international culinary destination.
As we plan for the future of Skift Table, we’re proud to deliver conversations with two of the brightest minds ushering the restaurant industry forward. Stay tuned to Skift Table for highlights of Meyer and Redzepi’s appearances and continued insight and analysis of the future of dining out.
