BLOCK & Associates

As the Principal and Founder of Block & Associates, Adam Block has advised some of the most influential restaurants, hotels and casinos in the world beyond being an avid supporter of sustainability with focus on local farming and environmentally responsible practices.



Block and Associate’s clients and projects live and thrive in some of the world’s greatest and demanding culinary markets including New York, San Francisco, London, Singapore, Paris and Las Vegas. The New York Times describes Adam’s consulting work as that of a star athlete manager, “who can fit talent with golden opportunity, the alchemist who can help chefs make big money.”

”He’ll customize the needs or desires of the chef with what the circumstances are. He’ll mesh the two together. It’s really incredible. He works on everything from making a deal happen to arranging for financing if that’s desired. There’s no one who does exactly what he does.”- C.T.


“If it’s grown in the region, we eat it in season”.

Not simply a saying but a true-to-heart mantra. In addition to consulting, Adam Block is the operator and owner of PRINT. Restaurant and The Press Lounge.

PRINT. Restaurant is a seasonally sourced restaurant situated on the Westside of Manhattan’s Hell's Kitchen. New York’s first restaurant to staff a full-time forager that tracks ingredients daily from local farms and regional vendors to showcase on the menu. Print Restaurant does more than bring the farm to the restaurant; it brings the best fare available that day, always inspired by the season. The cuisine appeals to locavores, evoking original flavors honed from around the world.

Block’s overall vision for Print Restaurant was to create an experience that not only delivers excellent dishes for diners, but also provides exposure to local suppliers that support organic and sustainable farming.

A breathtaking experience and impeccible service.

The Press Lounge, atop the Ink48 Hotel, is Block’s sister venue to Print Restaurant. Opened in 2010, it quickly became recognized as one of Manhattan’s finest rooftop lounges; Frank Bruni, of The New York Times, wrote that the Press Lounge was “without question, one of the city’s most attractive rooftop bars”. In the same year New York Magazine recognized it as New York’s “Top New Rooftop Bar”, ABC rated it as one of the top 22 rooftops in the world, and Urban Daddy named the Press Lounge as the Perfect ’10.


”Something tasty and very new.
We built this app just for you...“

Beyond creating and developing some of the most influential restaurants in the world, Adam Block helped develop and produce the progressive new app, Yumavore.

Yumavore is a participant driven concept that not only engages it’s base through access to innovative recipe discovery but encourages and rewards them to become active participants and contributors. It is truly the first ingredient-to-plate app designed to meet the needs of the home chef in search of a powerful, intuitive and beautiful recipe, publishing and shopping tool.
