Back in the day my cash was hard earned. I was waitin tables at a joint called the Modern. And pouring a cup of fair trade Sumatran when I spy the leader of the Food and Wine squadron. Swagger like milk, got it by the gallon. The jacket looks French the loafers look Italian. Probably got a wall of James Beard medallions you already know. This is Dana Cowan. Got out of Brown and started running this town. But the Upper West Side's where she settled down. [UNKNOWN] Barclay kids, Sylvia and William, three biggest fans even though she's got a million. Best new [UNKNOWN] times 20 great years, that's 200 booths to 200 careers. Multiply that by the mouths those chefs fed and wait, do you have a calculator, my phone is dead. The point is that right now you should be cheering for the chick who used to wear only one earring. She'll circle your work with a pen that's purple. When she started this job I was watching Erkel. The 90's remember? Plaid, the macarena. Nobody knew about lemon verbena. No sweet peppers for a spicy jalapena, two decades of awesome two decades of Dana.
