about us

When foodies and feminists put their heads together. . .

We became friends over a slice of pizza. Little did we know that our best memories would be formed over countless meals shared while exploring New York City’s abundance of restaurants.

As the #MeToo movement brought many of the restaurant industry’s long standing injustices to the headlines, we started to wonder: who is behind the restaurants we love and as restaurant goers how can we help to push the needle towards creating an industry that is more equitable?

Our mission is to support women in the restaurant industry by encouraging consumers to make powerful political decisions with their dollars. To accomplish this goal, we developed eat to elevate.

We hope eat to elevate is where you and your friends can discover new restaurants and learn about the incredible women behind them.
