Chef Alex Stupak’s East Village: How one neighborhood can tell the story of a city

Posted June 02, 2016

You can explore the furthest reaches of Brooklyn or Queens to find inspiration in New York City, but for chef Alex Stupak, there’s enough to stir the spirit in the East Village alone. Home to two of Stupak’s Empellón restaurants, the Manhattan neighborhood is a nexus of new and old New York, where hot eateries, galleries and music venues share turf with vestiges of the city’s past. The best way to take it all in, says Stupak: Look up.
