In this very special New Year’s episode we went into the archives, way back to 2015 for a conversation recorded at the Cornelia St Cafe. Sadly, due to rent increases, the Cornelia St Cafe – a West Village institution – will be closing soon.

Joining Jimmy on this evening were: Robin Hirsch, co-owner and co-founder of Cornelia st cafe; Daric Schlesselman, the Founder of Van Brunt Stillhouse in Brooklyn; Allison Patel of Brenne Whiskey; and Liz stretch, from Slow Food NYC and NYU’s Food Studies Program.

Together they discuss the history of Cornelia St Cafe, the local distilling movement, huge change in American palates over the past four decades, and much much more.
