Ben Jones, Owner
Ben grew up making traditional Chinese dumplings with his mother and throwing untraditional dinner parties with his father. He moved to New York City in 2002 with the dream of opening a restaurant. Seven years later he did. He also owns Southside Coffee, located across the street from Lot 2, and is Board Chairman of the Gowanus Canal Conservancy.
Daniel Rojo, Chef/Owner
Daniel Rojo was born and raised in Los Angeles. He attended culinary school in 2004 in order to escape corporate life and pursue what he really cared about: cooking. After stints in Los Angeles and Oakland he moved to New York and began finding work in three star restaurants. He soon became disenchanted with Manhattan fine dining, as it reminded him of the corporate hell he had escaped from. These days, Daniel is grateful to visit the green market often and cook simple, honest food for his friends and neighbors.
Thea Bloomberg, Floor Manager
After finishing her coursework at Columbia University School of the Arts in June 2009, Thea Bloomberg did what many aspiring MFA writing students do- got a job in a restaurant. The restaurant was Lot 2 and it changed her life. She fell in love with Daniel Rojo (see above), marrying him at Lot 2 on July 24th, 2011. She also fell hard for her job serving food and drinks to customers she has gotten to know and care so much about, alongside coworkers she considers her dearest friends and family. When she’s not at the restaurant, Thea can be found around the corner at home, trying to make good on that MFA in writing.
