Ben, like so many other hopefuls in the hospitality industry started in an entry level position. Immediately Ben showed promise and the company recognized his ability to make connections with people. In 2015 Porchlight opened and Ben arrived as a bar back and server. He quickly rose through the ranks where today he is the beverage director. Located in Chelsea, Porchlight can accommodate single diners all the way up to large groups. The food is southern inspired. You could call it “Elevated Bar Food”. The cocktail menu is vast, outstanding and creative. Ben and the team are setting the trends at one of New York’s hottest cocktail bars.
