This week’s conversations took place at one of our favorite restaurants in New Haven: Union League Cafe (thanks Jean-Pierre!), and our guest editors were Cynthia Lyon, Susan Jacobs, and Cynthia’s sister, food critic Todd Lyon.
Cynthia is the founder and leader of Eight To The Bar, where she is also the primary songwriter and arranger. She has also played with Amyl and the Icons and The Dirty Blondes of New York City.
Susan has practiced law for more than thirty years, devoting her practice to Divorce Mediation and Collaborative Law. She is active in community theater and has served on numerous boards and commissions in the Town of Woodbridge.
Todd has been covering the local restaurant scene for 20-plus years, for The New Haven Register, The New Haven Advocate, Connecticut Magazine and now the newly-launched Daily Nutmeg. She has authored, co-authored and/or ghost-written 17 books on subjects as diverse as Champagne, business and kissing. For the last seven years, she and co-owner Nancy Shea have run Fashionista Vintage and Variety, a clothing store for eccentrics.
