The year was 2008. A business owner of a co-working space in New York City by the name of Tina Roth Eisenberg began to see the economy struggling, and as a result, her friends that were in creative careers began struggling too. She started to wonder if there was a way that she could gather her creative community together once a month to hear an inspirational speaker and include free coffee and breakfast. CreativeMornings was born!
It is said that you can tell a lot about a woman by her shoes. From fun and festive to sleek and modern, San Antonio’s Chef Lisa Astorga-Watel is a lot of both! Lisa was born in Santiago, Chile and in her young-adult life she eventually moved to Houston, Texas to be with family. As she began deciding her career path she realized that she wanted to make her passion her profession and was drawn to the fashion industry early on.
If you have not had a chance to be a patron of the new La Panaderia downtown off Houston Street, then ándale because you are in for a treat! You may have been to the location off of Broadway, but the location off East Houston Street is special, not only because of the food, but the design and operations as well.
It was a hot summer day and brunch sounded great, but a spicy cajun/creole brunch? Nola Brunch & Beignets did not disappoint!
Nola (short for New Orleans) is one of those local success stories that started out as a food truck (called Where Y’at) and then moved to brick and mortar neighboring their sister restaurant, The Cookhouse.
