About Erik Bruner-Yang

An agent of alternatives, Erik Bruner-Yang creates space. Through his Washington DC-based concept development company, Foreign National, he offers an alternative: food and space as commons. There exists a constant dialogue of community, culture and progress. His restaurants are instinctual; contemporary yet habitual. Erik Bruner-Yang hopes that Brothers and Sisters and Spoken English, two concepts located in LINE DC, as well as Maketto, will show guests that experiences are the new luxury.
