Gillian Laub Captures Danny Meyer for The New York Times
Gillian Laub documents a day in the life of New York restaurateur Danny Meyer for the latest issue of The New York Times Magazine. Meyer is the owner of popular New York restaurants Eleven Madison Park, Union Square Cafe, Gramercy Tavern, Modern, Maialino, Untitled, and Shake Shack. He is also the CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group. Meyer spoke with the New York Times about his many restaurants, upcoming ventures, and his business strategy.
Laub followed Meyer while he visited several of his businesses. They started the day at the Shake Shack in Westport, CT, then visited Maialino and Gramercy Tavern in New York City, stopped in at a new restaurant opening later this year in Battery Park City and finished the day with a workout at his athletic club. Laub calls Meyer "the busiest and nicest guy I've met."
The issue's cover illustration is based on a photograph Laub took of Meyer.
