TAO Strategic Group
Established by co-owners Noah Tepperberg and Jason Strauss, this team markets and promotes many of the world’s top grossing nightlife and entertainment venues, including Marquee, Avenue and Lavo. In combination with Rich Wolf and Mark Packer’s TAO Group, they oversee Bodega Negra, PH-D Rooftop Lounge and The Beach at Dream Downtown in NY; The Rickey, Fishbowl and PH-D Terrace at Dream Midtown in NY; and TAO, Beauty & Essex, Avenue, Luchini Pizzeria & Bar and The Highlight Room at Dream Hollywood in LA, CA.
Widely acclaimed in the interior design segment, Serge Becker has been the face to the name behind many up-and-coming hotspots in New York City for years. For the Bodega Negra restaurant at Dream Downtown, he created a feast for the eyes worthy of the meals to be eaten there, with moodily-lit seating, antique tequila barrels, authentic memorabilia and a 10,000-penny chandelier.
A celebrated chef with an immensely successful career, Geoffrey Zakarian opened and maintains oversight of The Lambs Club at New York’s The Chatwal Hotel, which highlights his signature modern American cuisine in a resplendent Art Deco setting.
“…I dine out all the time, first because I love it, but secondly because, as a chef you need to see restaurants from the dining room perspective, not just from the kitchen. You have to be vigilant about every facet of the meal." – Geoffrey Zakarian
