About Lisa

No matter where she's lived, Lisa Kahn has always called New York "home." Raised in Queens, Lisa studied journalism and consumed lots of premium ice cream in Boston. However, the manic energy of Manhattan eventually beckoned her back.

Lisa has promoted New York travel for NYC & Company, The New York Times and Fodor's Travel Guides. An avid home cook, she has also penned food features for The Star-Ledger and is the editor of two grilling cookbooks. Lisa currently spends lots of time in Brooklyn scouring vintage stores and sampling the new restaurants springing up seemingly overnight on every street.

Special Interests

Lisa knows a lot about:

  • Budget decorating
  • Impromptu flower arranging
  • Pampering a rescued mutt

Lisa's Special Recommendations

Lisa says, "Don't leave New York without making a stop in Brooklyn, home to many of the city's hottest new restaurants, bars and music venues."
