About Me : I am fourth generation New Yorker, born and bred on the Lower East Side. Food has always been a huge part of my culture and a common love across my family. My grandfather worked for 40 years at the B&H Dairy on 2nd Ave, and I named Poppy's after him. I have always loved working in restaurants and began my career in events and catering over ten years ago. I've lived in Brooklyn for 10 years, where I met my husband, Kevin. Last Fall, we had our son, Dylan and currently live in Red Hook, which we love.
