Solo host Greg Bresnitz is talking all things Puerto Rico with Marie Elena Martinez, founder of the Meets NYC events, Chefs Manolo Lopez, Pedro Alvarez, and Mixologist Lynette Marrero. Rounding out the celebration, Puerto Rico Meets NYC shared the bounty and beauty of this Caribbean island’s culinary legacy. By shedding light on Puerto Rico’s best chefs, the rums, and the accompanying food and travel intersection, Puerto Rico Meets NYC showed this sunny destination the epicurean respect and exposure it deserves. Tapping into the deep network of Nuyoricans inhabiting New York City and surrounding, these guests leave everyone hungry for more. Tune in for a rousing live performance from Bombayo as well, playing the traditional music of Puerto Rico with some amazing bomba music!
