Long Island chefs among restaurant executives meeting with President Trump
Some Long Island chefs met with President Donald Trump to focus on their hard-hit industry.
President Trump took part in a roundtable with restaurant executives and industry leaders Monday afternoon.
The discussions included representatives of the Independent Restaurant Coalition, a group organized during the pandemic to represent the interests of independent restaurants around the country.
"Last month alone in the first half of April, more than one out of four people that applied for unemployment were restaurant workers. One out of four, that's just insane," said Eleven Madison Park's Will Guidara.
Its leadership includes famous North Fork chefs like "Top Chef" star Tom Colicchio, former presidential chef Sam Kass, as well as celebrated Travel Channel chef Andrew Zimmern, who has a house in East Hampton.
