Meet the Concierge Event Recap

More than 80 members of Flatiron’s diverse business and hospitality sectors came together Tuesday, March 6th, for a chance to “Meet the Concierge.”  Where New York’s trademark event, held at the Baruch Performing Arts Center (BPAC), brought together an expert panel of concierges offering advice on forging connections to build business.

“Tourism is a major economic driver in New York City, and in and around our immediate neighborhood we’ve seen a significant growth in the number of hotels over the past decade,” said Jennifer Brown, Executive Director of the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership. “This is our first time hosting an event that is focused solely on the hotel industry and ways for local businesses to maximize their relationships with that sector."

The networking breakfast and program included opening remarks by Jennifer Brown, BPAC Director Ted Altschuler, and Adeline Tafuri Jurecka, Publisher and Vice President of National Marketing of Where In New York. T-Mobile also sponsored the event.

The panel featured Briana Davis-Greer, Concierge, 1 Hotel Central Park; Harold Mootz, Assistant Chef Concierge, The St. Regis New York; Eric Valencia, Concierge, The Dominick, Marco De Los Rios, Concierge, Lotte New York Palace; and, Tim Markman, Concierge, The NoMad.

All stressed the importance of businesses building relationships, being cognizant to when concierges are likely too busy to meet, and developing good business practices. “It always come down to one sole thing: the power of a good relationship and finding that connection with a concierge,” Markman said.

Concierges offered advice, such as getting to know Chef Concierges, who manage the concierge desk; emailing early about events and updates about a business; making sure staff at establishments are aware of concierges so they can respond if a concierge reaches out; and avoiding unannounced visits.

“Don’t come around the hours of 2 to 4 pm,” Markman advised, “and please don’t call me and don’t demand to speak to me right then and there.” Emails often are ways to get your contact and event information added into a hotel concierges’ shared database. “Emails go a long way.”

Flatiron Foodies: Harding's Braised Short Ribs

Harding’s Braised Short Ribs are an all-American classic especially well-suited for these cold winter months. Their savory, tender short ribs are seasoned to perfection, and are sure please!

Braised Short Ribs

Serves: 4-6


  • 3 pounds of boneless chuck flap
  • Mirepoix (1 medium Spanish onion, 4 celery stalks, 1 carrot, diced)
  • 2-3 sprigs of thyme
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tablespoon of whole peppercorns, ground
  • 1/4 bottle of red wine (preferably Cabernet Sauvignon)
  • 1.5 quarts of  veal stock (fat cap removed)
  • kosher salt for seasoning meat
  • canola oil blend (for searing)


  1. Remove silver skin and excess fat from beef and cut into 5 ounce pieces
  2. Heavily season the meat with kosher salt and black pepper
  3. In a large preheated roasting pan, sear the meat ensuring all sides brown thoroughly (may need to be done in batches) 
  4. Once the meat has browned, transfer to deep baking pans.
  5. If not overly scorched, use the same roasting pan used for browning your beef to roast the mirepoix. Add the garlic and thyme, and deglaze with the bottle of red wine.
  6. Split the deglazed vegetables between the baking pans containing the seared short ribs. 
  7. Split the veal stock between the pans. 
  8. Add enough water to just cover the ribs. Bring to a boil and cover with aluminum foil. 
  9. Bake at 300 degrees for 2.5 hours. 
  10. Allow the short ribs to cool in liquid but be sure to remove from liquid before they solidify.
  11. Reserve your braising liquid and heat for a sauce during meal service.

Celery Root & Potato Puree


  • 4 Yukon potatoes cooked for 15 minutes (peeled)
  • 1 Celery Root cooked for 10 minutes (peeled)
  • 16 ounces milk
  • 16 ounces cream
  • 1 cup butter
  • salt to toast


  1. The ratio is two to one, Yukon potatoes to celery root. Cook separately, as they take different amounts of time to bake through. 
  2. While still hot, both the cooked Yukon potatoes and celery root should be whipped in food processor. 
  3. Finish like a standard potato puree with heavy cream, butter, and salt. In order to make the puree more fluffy, use the whisk head on your home mixer.
