Eric Blauberg’s culinary career began at age 12, washing pots in the Catskills. After he graduated from school, he attended the CIA and apprenticed at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel after school. He went to work at David Bouley’s, Bouley Restaurant, until it closed in 1996. He then went to Colors, before he opened his own restaurant, American Renaissance.
In 1999 he replaced Great Chef Michael Lomonaco at the ‘21’ Club, when Chef Lomonaco moved to the Top of the World Trade Center. The Great Chefs television team showed up at the ‘21’ Club in 2000 to tape Chef Blauberg for the Discovery Channel’s Great Chefs of America.
In 2003, he left the ‘21’ Club to start EKB Restaurant Consulting and later, Culinary Passport, a culinary travel agency. In 2014 he opened Stanton Street Kitchen in New York City, but it closed seven months later.
