James Beard Finalist

James Beard Award Finalist, Nicole Ponseca, is best known for bringing Filipino food to the American mainstream. First with Maharlika then with Jeepney, Ponseca is a pioneer in exposing discerning New York diners to Filipino flavors. The popularity of her two restaurants translated into a best-selling debut cookbook called "I Am a Filipino" published by Artisan and received a James Beard Award nomination for Best International Cookbook in 2019. It's also on to the best cookbook lists of 2019 by The New Yorker, Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, New York Times Book Review, Houston Chronicle, Food52, PopSugar, and more. Ponseca has made appearances on NBC News, Beat Bobby Flay, Chopped, Worth It, Munchies, Tasty, Zagat and was featured in the documentary ULAM: Main Dish.

Born in Philly and raised in San Diego, she spent 20+ years in New York City. She is a graduate of the University of San Francisco. In her past life, she was an advertising executive working with Fortune 500 clients by day. At night, she was hustling as a restaurant hostess-server-bartender, determined to learn as much as she could about the restaurant business. Her first solo foray into the restaurant scene began with a wildly successful series of pop-up engagements when the concept of a pop-up was still brand new to most people. Fast forward a few years later and Ponseca was one of the 1.3% of female-owned businesses that exceeded multi-million in revenue. (as estimated by the NY Times). Rarer still is her position and success as a woman and person of color in a male dominated industry.

Currently Ponseca has branched out into meal kits delivering her signature dishes to her loyal customer base in the Tri State Area with plans to expand into grocery stores in the near future. She also launched a fast casual version of Jeepney in Miami, marking her first expansion effort outside of New York City at Miamiโ€™s brand new 1-800 Lucky, a 10,000 square feet food hall in Miamiโ€™s Wynwood district. I Am a Filipino is in its third printing.
