About Gabriel Stulman
Gabriel Stulman opened the beloved West Village restaurant Little Owl at the age of 25. Just two years later came Market Table, another neighborhood staple. In 2009 Stulman opened his first solo venture, named for both of his grandfathers, Joseph Leonard on Waverly Place to rave reviews. This fall, across the way, he opened Jeffrey’s Grocery, a grocery store, luncheonette, oyster and wine bar in the quaint corner shop on Christopher Street and Waverly Place. Most recently, Mr. Stulman has opened Fedora, a raffish neo-speakeasy, located only a few blocks away from Leonard and Jeffrey’s and Perla, a neighborhood rustic Italian gem.
