About this Event

Edible History’s Victoria Flexner traces the evolution of the New York City restaurant, from the early taverns of the 19th century, through dining halls and chophouses, to the restaurant as we know it today. Diners learn how factors like housing, immigration, gender roles, and the expansion of the city itself led to the creation of New York’s cultural mecca: the restaurant.

Victoria Flexner is the founder and resident historian of Edible History. She is a former museum educator who has worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Public Library, and the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum. Victoria holds a degree in history from the University of Edinburgh and an MA in historical studies from the New School. Flexner has led over thirty Edible History dinners around New York City–in restaurants, urban farms, historical homes, and more.
