We asked Andrew Shahadi, VP of Strategic Partnerships at Howard Hughes Corporation about this all-star bartender line-up and he explained, “We chose our lineup of bartenders because they are the best at what they do. We looked at a number of different factors when vetting these individuals, including relevance, award history, what made them stand out/ unique, and of course location. We wanted fans of Seaport Food Lab to be able to experience mixology from all over the United States, which is why this year’s lineup is represented from talent in Los Angeles, Boston and Puerto Rico, and of course NYC. In addition, we have Wylie Dufresne and Mark Ladner, two seasoned chefs, creating specialized food menus to pair with our mixologists cocktails, and it was important for us to find mixologists whose styles were versatile enough to create unique pairings for a one-of-a-kind culinary experience.”
