The insider's scoop on food, travel & southern culture
Who am I? I’m Simone. And for the past 16 years, I’ve made my home in Washington, DC and Virginia, where I’ve gotten myself all wrapped up in the marvelous culture of these places. I have handled for 25 years the media relations and marketing for a number of select, premier restaurants, spirits and hotels in several of the most sensual and exciting cities—a lifestyle of long days, late nights, colorful people and a constant indulgence of the best food in the country. No shortage of spice in this life.
Quite fittingly, I’m married to a chef, who’s not only the love of my life, but so are his pastries and nightly dinners at home. [I rarely cook, but I eat!] We’ve put our heart and soul into his eatery, with which we wish to give this city a taste of our New Orleans roots. I’m a mom of two boys—or should I say banshees—who make my life a thrill ride and my days all the much more richer. My company, SimoneInk, epitomizes all that I love about this industry, and in my opinion, I have the best career in the world. My life is a roller coaster, a whirlwind, a zoo and a blessing, and it just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t share it with you.
