La Pirata is a New York–based agency by food writer Alicia Kennedy that produces events and provides content strategy for chefs, food businesses, and restaurants and bars. 

I have produced pop-up dinners, fundraisers, and conferences. Thanks to wide-reaching connections, I’m able to assemble teams from farm to kitchen to bar to front of house that work together seamlessly, and can also bring in designers, photographers, DJs, and artists to round it all out.

In addition to being able to put together events both large and small, I’m able to provide a full-range of digital content strategy—whether it's social media or publicity.
