May here! I officially created DON DON NY spring of 2016 to introduce a modern twist to the Japanese foods that I love eating. When New Yorkers think of Japanese food, they always think of sushi or ramen. There’s so much more to Japanese comfort food and DON DON NY wants to share an OG staple, Japanese curry and katsu. We posted up at Hester Street Fair last year and currently laying out the events for 2017. Look for us around New York food markets when you’re feeling hungry.
May, Travis and Mark are the trio behind the savory Japanese Curry and crispy Katsu bites of Don Don NY. They all met at their “day jobs”, Maialino, a Danny Meyer-owned New York restaurant in the Gramercy Park neighborhood. They want to thank all their friends, family, and coworkers that helped make their first season of Don Don NY as huge of a success as it was a learning opportunity. From showing up to tastings, helping us in the kitchen and supporting us at our fairs, we couldn’t have done it without you. Much love.
