Path 101 Co-Founder & CEO Charlie O'Donnell will be interviewing Danny Meyer, New York City restaurateur. He was born and raised in St Louis, and spent portions of his childhood traveling throughout Europe with his father's tour company, studying food and hospitality extensively in France and Italy (including such cities as Bordeaux, Rome, and Paris). In 1985, at the age of 27, he began his career as a restaurateur with the opening of Union Square Cafe.

His restaurants include: Union Square Cafe (with Michael Romano), Gramercy Tavern, Tabla(With Floyd Cardoz), Blue Smoke( With Kenny Callagahan), Eleven Madison Park, and the social hub of the NYC Tech Community, Shake Shack.

Six of his restaurants are in the Union Square area of Manhattan; the greenmarket there played a role in the situation of his restaurants.

Meyer has made numerous appearances at the annual Food & Wine Magazine Classic in Aspen, Colorado.

The Epi-log, the Food Blog side of Epicurious Magazine On Line, reports that Danny will be in charge of the food at CitiField, the new Mets Stadium when it opens in 2009.
