Chef Sara Kramer

Glasserie, one of Greenpoint’s most celebrated restaurants, is soon to be losing its head chef, Sara Kramer.

Kramer is parting ways from Glasserie owner Sara Conklin after what she describes as “difficulty in trying to unite our distinct visions for the restaurant.”

Kramer will be replaced by chef Eldad Shem Tov, who descends from Rene Redzepi’s two Michelin-starred Noma in Copenhagen, rated as one of the best restaurants in the World.

“His background is Mediterranean and his food soulful and rustic, a natural fit for Glasserie. He is a great creative talent and we’re humbled to have him on board,” Conklin tells us.  “I expect that the neighborhood will love what he brings to the table.”

Eldad and Kramer are currently working closely together to seamlessly pass the chef’s baton before Kramer leaves the kitchen in a few weeks’ time.


“Kramer has been awesome at helping to establish Glasserie, and we’re very excited to support her in her new endeavors,” says Conklin.

Whilst Kramer’s amazing talents will no doubt be hugely missed at Glasserie, there will be much interest in seeing what new flavors Shem Tov has in store for us.
