John deBary has been making the world a more joyful, delicious place, ever since he started bartending at the James Beard award-winning cocktail bar PDT (Please Don’t Tell) in 2008. He’s created amazing concoctions for the Momofuku restaurant empire, and the annual Food & Wine cocktail book. But we’re also grateful that John co-founded the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation, which is dedicated to helping hospitality industry professionals, through advocacy, grantmaking and impact investing.
