The What if Promise
What If Syndicate is the national hospitality group driven by five partners: David Pisor, Jim Lasky, Chef Danny Grant, Molly Currey and Matt Winn; and a team of world-class food lovers who serve to live and live to serve. The business is built upon three units: The primary is a collection of dynamic, profitable restaurants; the second a restaurant incubator; and the third a private lifestyle club as well as a products program. Successful restaurants exist for many years by delivering any two of the following: Great food, great service, or a great experience. Our team’s goal is to achieve iconic destinations and programs by delivering on all three. Our restaurants and our teams deliver an experience beyond what is expected—that is the What If promise.
