Meet the Maker
The East Village of NYC has Elsa, a family-owned cocktail bar specializing in innovative drinks, and now we can all have a taste of it too. Jay Schneider and Natalka Burian, co-owners of Elsa, in partnership with Jay’s sister, Elisabeth Schneider, founded City of Daughters in 2012 to bring the best of their bar into our homes.
