NATASHA POGREBINSKY – Bear, Long Island City
The New York Times has called Chef Natasha’s work “bold, delicious, and fiery.” Born in the Soviet Ukraine, her artist father brought their family to the U.S. as refugees when she was 10. Her cooking utilizes her Ukrainian and Russian heritage along with a modern gourmet flare she picked up via places like the French Culinary Institute. You may have caught one of Natasha’s guest chef TV appearances on shows like NBC’s The Chopping Block.
