Hey everyone it’s Rashad and this is Wear Many Hats presented by Dahsar where we talk about your main gig then we talk about your side hustle. You can check out all the episodes of the Wear Many Hats Podcast on all platforms and at wearmanyhats.com

WMH and Dahsar is made possible by listeners like you. Thank you.

Natalie Freihon is the founder of Strange Bird Hospitality who brings to life in New York City these great restaurants, Nat’s On Bank, Nat’s on Bleecker, and The Orchard Townhouse.

Surprisedly I’ve eaten at The Orchard Townhouse when I used to work in Chelsea, oh my photo and video days, but definitely stopped by when I’m bopping around to galleries.

Lo and behold I enjoy walking down Chelsea into the West Village, it’s kind of one of my favorite things to do. Get my steps in. But yes I know I tell all my friends I never go above 14th street but this is an exception.

Now I can add a favorite into my Google Maps for Nat’s on Bank which was a great experience having friend, guest, and collaborator Christian Schwartz of Commercial Type to go to lunch with.

Nat’s Mountain House is about to drop and it’s in the Catskills in which we go up every summer. Ever since I discovered glamping I can never go back.

Please welcome Natalie Freihon to Wear Many Hats.

Nat’s On Bank

What’s incredible is that Nat’s on Bank and Nat’s on Bleecker are very interesting and unique spots especially the decor! What I love about restaurants now is that they take pride in their bathroom decor. The bathroom at Nat’s on Bank has a disco ball and I feel like I’m at an LCD Soundsystem show.

Nat’s Mountain House

Congrats on Nat’s Mountain House. Very exciting. I go to Phoenicia Diner every year so I’m glad they’ll be another pit stop.

Hats off

Hats off to you and everything that you do, for some Dahsar Wear Many Hats solutions, Nat’s on Wear Many Hats. We would love to collaborate on some Merch with you.
