On today’ episode of THE FOOD SEEN, we kick off with Sabra Lewis, a sommelier who studied dance and moved to the big city with her sights set on Broadway. After some time bussing tables and spilling drinks, Lewis preformed as part of the legendary Radio City Music Hall Rockettes. There were roles in Phantom of the Opera and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang as well, but it was during break on a trip to Italy, that table wine and good food changed her high kicking course. Popping bottles at such restaurants like Gunter Seeger, Shuko, The NoMad Hotel and Rouge Tomate, Lewis’ Christmas Spectacular is now more about Champagne, than a chorus line.
“How I found my voice is just really diving into knowledge and context, and stories of winemakers and stories of my personal travels, and I think that has made me find my power at the table. That’s everything to me.” – Sabra Lewis
