Q&A Drew Nieporent
How did you get into the business?
My mother was a child actress, then in radio and theater. My father worked as an attorney for the New York State Liquor Authority licensing restaurants so he was friendly with some of the most iconic restaurateurs of the ‘60s. I was exposed to every nationality as a kid. I was exposed to restaurants very very early.
