‘New York City Hospitality Alliance’ Launches Via Nieporent, Hanson, Etc.

Very Drewish.

A new group of vociferous restaurateurs, hoteliers, and hospitality hotshots have joined forces (and funds) to form the New York City Hospitality Alliance, a lobbying group aimed at city regulatory agencies. Leaders include: Drew Nieporent, Stephen Hanson, Herb Wetanson (owner of Dallas BBQ), Jeffrey Bank (Carmines), and more. This clique is not to be confused with the New York State Restaurant Association who's V.P is an unimpressed-sounding Marc Murphy. [NYT]
