We are DAYNA AND BRIAN LEE, a husband and wife team who love everything arts and everything food. This blog was created to chronicle our amazing journey through New York City. We moved to NYC in 2015 after meeting in college to live out our dreams of working in the entertainment industry. We run a Tony Award winning production company, AF CREATIVE MEDIA that has been apart of bringing some pretty cool work to Broadway. On top of our love for the arts, is an insatiable love for food, cuisine and culture. We created @artsandfood over 4 years ago and have worked closely with many hospitality groups, brands and chefs. We recently took our reservation skills and put them to work in our kitchen. We pride ourselves on being home cooks and never taking ourselves too seriously! As a married couple who also run a business together, food and cooking offer us a great way to have some “out of office” time together. Nothing like simmering a Bolognese sauce with your spouse-coworker-best friend! Our love of food has also extended to the naming of our cats, Kishka and Gravy, both named after Jewish delicacies! We invite you to travel through our site and check out our easy at-home recipes, restaurant hacks and all things cultural in NYC! We hope that having a glimpse into our life brings some joy to yours! Happy eating!
