General & Manager
Jeff comes to us from Boston, MA and has held head sommelier/wine director positions at some of NYC’s biggest restaurants, including EMP, Betony, and North End Grill. Jeff loves Northern Rhone Syrah, soft scrambled eggs with white truffles, and wandering through his Brooklyn neighborhood.
Alex joins us from St. Paul, MN and has been in the retail biz for 13 years. He studied jazz piano, makes electronic dance music, performs around the city, and loves wine from Piedmont.
Our sake & spirits specialist, Max, grew up in California and now lives in Williamsburg with his French bulldog, Mono. He enjoys tomato soup and watching excessive amounts of Bob’s Burgers.
Our southern belle, Kate, hails from Nashville, Tennessee. When not assisting our guests, you can find her eating bagels, drinking Muscadet, or feeding treats to pups that visit our shop.
Our tallest team member! A Hawaiian native, Devin stands at a soaring 6’6, partakes in a bowling league, and enjoys hosting dinner/making far more food than necessary for his friends.
Originally from Arizona, Quinn has a passion for University of AZ sports teams, Italian grape varieties, rock climbing, and hockey. He’s most likely eating or drinking something delicious.
Gianni comes to us from Monterey, California. He enjoys exercising, weightlifting, and spotlights at The Four Horsemen bar. He enjoys Grower Champagne, especially a good Blanc de Blancs.
Our in-house writer, Vicki, lives on the Upper East Side, has a passion for pugs, running, Loire Valley wines, and travelling. There’s a 50% chance that she’s currently not in NYC.
