Greenpoint Portrait: Jessica Wertz (No Name Bar) / Korean Menu Coming… (4/1)
This week’s portrait revived my love for photography. I do it everyday, like a copying machine, product after product. I am happy as long as my eye is in the viewfinder, but when I take a great portrait, an honest and beautiful portrait, something happens, a new connection is made, it’s a breakthrough. Happy brain hormones flow. That said, it has all to do with my subject.
It wasn’t hard with Jessica Wertz, who is unapologetically badass, drinking a pint of Guinness, rocking a gold tooth, has a German shepherd side-kick, and is drop-dead gorgeous. And she owns on of the coolest bars in Greenpoint – No Name Bar. Enough said. But I have more…
I know you’re asking- what happened to the food at No Name Bar? I know this because I get emails and tweets about this all the time! Good thing I have been stalking the bar weekly asking the same question.
Cat’s out of the bag – a home-style Korean menu, inspired by Jessica’s mother’s cooking will debut on April 1st. That’s this Monday! This isn’t a joke.
