Episode 056: Andrew Rigie

After a nearly 7-month hiatus, I am happy to have on as my first guest back on Real Estate REality Check someone who I consider to be the equivalent of the Pulp Fiction character Winston Wolf when it comes to making a difference for the restaurant industry that has been, in the words of Mick Jagger, absolutely “SHATTERED” by the impact of COVID-19. Even if you have been doing your best impression of “The Bubble Boy” character from Seinfeld, Andrew Rigie, the Executive Director of the New York City Hospitality Alliance, has been like Elvis Presley ... you know, as in EVERYWHERE, as he goes about channeling Winston Wolf’s mantra of “I solve problems” for the 100’s of thousands of NYC restaurant workers that have been devastated by the pandemic. Andrew knows that without food and beverage coming back to being an integral part of our lives and the fabric that makes NYC so great, the road to recovery is going to be a long and treacherous one.
