Matt TervoorenNYC Staff Writer
Matt originally put himself on The Infatuation’s radar when he shared his personal hit list of NYC restaurants - a color-coded spreadsheet with thousands of places organized with notes and filters. Before joining us full time, he used his magical knowledge of natural wine bars and tiny Sri Lankan restaurants to help power Text Rex. Now, Matt is a staff writer responsible for reviewing restaurants and writing guides in New York. His hobbies include eating and going out to restaurants, which really should have been obvious by now.
Existing Conditions is an experimental cocktail bar in Greenwich Village from some of the people behind Booker & Dax and PDT.
Like the original, the East Village location of Emmy Squared serves great Detroit-style pizzas (and one of our favorite burgers).
