We're thrilled and honored that our Founder and Executive Chairman, Danny Meyer, was awarded Wine Spectator’s 2022 Distinguished Service Award. The award recognizes his commitment to nonprofit work to fight hunger and his advocacy to help the restaurant industry during the most difficult part of the pandemic. 

Upon receiving the award, Danny said “All I did the entire time was speak on behalf of the most amazing industry there is. Everyone in our industry, when brought to their knees, did everything they could do not to just to stay in business but to help one another. I'm so proud to be a part of it.”
