Carol is a native Floridian with a life-long love of all things hospitality.  Her first job was Frankie’s Pizza on Bird Road in Miami, folding pizza boxes.  She had a corporate career with Darden Restaurants managing several units of their Red Lobster concepts in South Florida.  With an itch to work for herself, she opened her first bar in Wilton Manors, Kicks Sports Bar, in October 1998.  For the next two decades, she owned New Moon Bar, 13|Even and Thirteen before moving to NY as she says, “for love.”

She is passionate about giving back to the community that has been so instrumental in her success, particularly for HIV awareness and women’s health issues.

Carol lives for a great glass of wine, a beautiful day on the water, and traveling.
