The ability to interact face-to-face and share ideas has been critical to human evolution and achievement. As we exchange wisdom from personal experiences, we evolve—intellectually, socially and emotionally. The art form of these personal exchanges—once a pillar of everyday life—is at risk of disappearing in a world increasingly satisfied by synthetic connection.

Please be seated.

The act of dining has long been a pillar for this art form. As we sit, we face one another in reflection. Food, a catalyst for socialization, placed between us to celebrate our commonalities and spark our curiosities.
