Roosevelt Island's Riverwalk Bar & Grill Chef Ally Gangeri Profiled - Get Up To Half Off Coupon For Her Restaurant Too

Fameology profiled Roosevelt Island Riverwalk Bar & Grill and Ally Cakes Chef Ally Gangeri yesterday in an article titled :

A “Sweet Genius” on Roosevelt Island
According to Fameology:
Chef Alyssa Gangeri is used to offbeat requests from customers through her specialty business, “Ally Cakes.” She has made custom confections in the shapes of guitars, basketballs, and even boxing gloves. While there’s an occasional special request for a unique filling or icing, most are the usual chocolate and vanilla. But when one “customer” requested duck fat as a mandatory ingredient, Gangeri was thrown off.

Duck fat was one of the required ingredients during Gangeri’s stint as a contestant on the first season of the Food Network reality show “Sweet Genius.”...
... Gangeri, 28, is the type of woman who reaches to shake your hand while she’s still ten feet away. She is the Executive Chef at the River Walk Bar and Grill on Roosevelt Island. She opened the casual restaurant with her boyfriend in 2009. She also continues to runs her own custom cake business, Ally Cakes, and consults for a hotel in Florida....

Find out how she did on the show. The full Sweet Genius episode is here.

Interesting article from Techcrunch on the business model for restaurants using Groupon coupons. Are Groupon coupon buyers existing customers looking for a discount or will the discount draw in new customers who will become regulars?

The Street TV's Jim Cramer does not think much of Groupon's business model.

If she's such an accomplished chef why does the food always disappoint me at the Bar & Grill? The burgers are good. The rest of the menu is just eh.

Don't know where the previous reviewer is eating but everything I have had there has been good if not great. The specials are often wonderful surprises & I look forward to the special menu changes (even have pushed for some to be added to the full-time menu). Ally is a great chef! Roosevelt Island is lucky to have this chef AND this restaurant!

The salads have always, and I really mean always, been a letdown. So were other things like the wings or the pasta. Again, nothing beats the burgers and fries. Those are awesome.
