Fast Chat with Jonathan Cepelak of Industry Standard Bar

Ever meet a staffer who greets you with a smile at a local restaurant or bar and say, “I wish I got to know more about that person.” 

It happens to our staff all the time as we come across interesting people with big personalities making a living at cafés, markets, wineries and shops across the North Fork.

This year we made a list of some of our favorite folks we’ve come across and called them in for a series of brief interviews we’re calling “Fast Chat.” Next up is head bartender Jonathan Cepelak of Industry Standard Bar in Greenport.

The series of one-minute videos, which is made possible by Sheri Winter Clarry, is being published on Mondays. Check back November 5 to see who we’ll talk to next.

Also in the series:

Giovanni Borghese, Castello di Borghese Vineyard

Jess Morris, North Fork Roasting Co.

Jerol Bailey, Lenz Winery

Katy Hurtubise, Little Creek Oyster Farm & Market
