The idea for HeViewSheView came out of an assignment for a writing class at NYU. One of the authors was pushed by her professor to change up her writing genre. Since she already had years of experience writing restaurant reviews with her husband on MenuPages (it was in fact a team sport), this blog is the natural result of her professor’s challenge. Natural because the two had already been actively reviewing restaurants from high to low, east to west, north to south, all around New York City for the bragging rights to who would be published on the Internet first.
Collectively, the authors bring their writing styles, perspectives and context to New York City’s restaurant scene. While they of course discuss the food they try, taste and enjoy, their focus is on the overall experience of their pursuit.

HeView, or SJR, is an attorney-turned-finance professional who will never accept his traditional Upper East Side "look."
