Halle Murcek is a Midwest born, New York bred writer who holds both a BA in Creative Nonfiction from Denison University and an MFA in fiction from The New School. There are very few jobs she hasn't had in the industry; from server to food runner to expeditor to S.A. to bar back to host, Maitre D, manager and everything in between she's done it all. Currently the Guest Experience Manager for Union Square Hospitality Group, you can find her bopping around the front doors of their restaurants and playing table tetris with the reservation books. The small things are her favorite because they matter the most. Halle uses her restaurant experience to fuel her creative juices in her writing and is currently working on a collection of essays about the industry. You can find her solo at any bar in the city with a book in one hand and an old fashioned in the other.
