about leah herman

A Toronto native, Leah moved to NYC in 2008 to pursue a career in food media. An interest in food writing serendipitously led her to Danny Meyer's acclaimed Union Square Hospitality Group, where she joined the PR & marketing team. For five years,  she worked with USHG's acclaimed family of restaurants, including Gramercy Tavern, Maialino, Union Square Cafe and The Modern, while also helping to support Shake Shack during its early growth phase. For the next three years, she was Gabriel Stulman's Director of Media and Communications at his West Village-based Happy Cooking Hospitality (Joseph Leonard, Jeffrey's Grocery, Fedora, Perla cafe and bar Sardine), before starting Kindred Co in 2016.
