Matt Eisler, president of Empire Holding Co. (Angels & Kings, Nightwood, Empire Liquors, Bar DeVille), was the only restaurateur/nightclub owner to make Crain's prestigious annual 40 Under 40 list.
Check out his profile here.
And NoMI's Fernando Beteta—the only wine professional on the list—caught the mag's attention for his "keen sense of smell and finely honed palate . . . and also his diverse background that propelled him to be named earlier this year to the Court of Master Sommeliers, of which there are only 171 members worldwide."
