Episode 110: Kathryn Minshew
Kathryn Minshew started her website, TheMuse.com, to help people find the perfect job. She started with one person in her living room and she has grown the company to 50 million visitors every month. At Izakaya Nomad, in Manhattan, Kathryn explains how she took “a great idea,” raised millions of dollar in capital and created the premier destination for Millennials to find jobs.
From sushi to sake: the 6 best izakayas in New York City
Also in Midtown is Izakaya NoMad, located at 13 W. 26th St. (between Broadway and 5th Ave.), is another top choice, with Yelpers giving it four stars out of 534 reviews. Look for offerings like enoki mushrooms wrapped in smoked bacon, okonomiyaki (a Japanese-style pancake with meat, seafood and vegetables) and vegetable tempura.
Bringing Japanese Comfort Food to NoMad
New York’s izakaya boom is still going strong, with dozens of Japanese gastropubs serving up skewers and small plates of Japanese comfort food. High on the list is Izakaya NoMad, which opened in mid-2014. Not to be confused with the NoMad Hotel nearby on Broadway and W. 28th, Izakaya NoMad is one of the shining stars of this resurgent neighborhood.
Izakaya NoMad’s Uni and Toro is a Decadent Duo
The Madison Square Park area has never been known for izakaya, the Japanese gastropubs that are haunts of salarymen, sake drinkers, and adventurous eaters alike. Izakaya NoMad is out to change all that as I learned during a press dinner recently. With a whimsical dining room featuring a Godzilla mural, it offers an accessible alternative that sits somewhere between the rarefied air of a Sakagura and St. Marks’ grease bespattered yakitori joints.
