Take advantage of this opportunity to host a table for family and friends or as a treat for your staff.

Melissa O'Donnell

She fell in love with restaurants while waitressing as a student and now she's marking 15 years running her own on New York's eclectic Lower East Side. Until recently her restaurant was Thelma on Clinton Street, after her Lebanese grandmother, and Melissa is one of the best known chefs in the neighbourhood. Last autumn she transformed it into Lil' Gem serving what she describes as 'Lebanese-ish' dishes. She says her cooking combines the flavour, the feeling and the essence of Lebanon.
