Chris Stang

Co-Founder & CEO

Originally hailing from the great state of Colorado, Chris Stang moved to NYC in 2002 to chase down a dream job in the music business. After spending nearly twelve years in marketing at Atlantic Records, he now runs The Infatuation full time, spending most of his time writing, and coming up with names for the Golden Retriever he doesn’t have. Stang was recently nominated for a James Beard Award for his very real review of the very fake restaurant, Underfinger, which he someday hopes to bring to life as a food-themed amusement park in rural Scandinavia

Karasu

Karasu is a Japanese speakeasy/izakaya you find by going through the back door of Walter’s in Fort Greene. Go for cocktails and fried chicken.

Augustine

When it comes to FiDi, Augustine is pretty much as good as it gets. Think Balthazar, but for bankers, and with somewhat better food.

Milos

Milos is a Midtown Greek restaurant specializing in fresh fish shipped in from the Mediterranean daily. It's pricey for dinner, but lunch is a steal.

Daikaya

There are plenty of ramen options in the District nowadays. Head to Daikaya in Chinatown when you're craving lighter, more traditional noodles.
