Venue Spotlight: Porsena

Posted by Olivia Brendel on Sep 30, 2019 11:35:26 AM

We love Porsena.

It’s everything a neighborhood trattoria should be: charming, homey and filled with the aroma of fresh herbs and piping hot plates of pasta.

Porsena isn’t serving up your average plate of spaghetti. Each dish is imaginative and thoughtfully prepared. Who’s behind the concept?

Meet owner, chef, author and entrepreneur Sara Jenkins. 

Sara Jenkins, 

Drawing inspiration from her childhood spent in Italy, Spain, and Lebanon, Chef Jenkins worked her way into the competitive NYC restaurant scene with great success.

How does a chef “make it” in New York City’s cutthroat restaurant industry? The recipe includes a whole lot of talent, skill, passion and perseverance.

Add in paving the way for female owners and chefs in a male-led industry and Jenkins' success is all the more impressive.
