a bit about Rameet
What do you do and why do you do it?
I build iPhone apps, because I love to create technology that disrupts tradition, that is well done, transparent, and elegant. I also develop hotels, where I’m driven to create a new type of guest experience that fuses my passions of technology, innovation and wellness.
What TV show is a must watch?
I never have time to watch TV! I’ve heard great things about Narcos, though.
What’s the best karaoke song of all times?
Which movie have you watched more than 3 times?
I’ve actually never done that before!
Are you a planned or a spontaneous shopper? What’s your go-to store in New-York City?
I’m an odd one when it comes to shopping. Henrik Vibskov is my favorite store, there is one in SoHo.
What’s the one place in New-York City that you’re sure only you truly appreciate?
There’s a little alley that connects Great Jones + Bond Streets.
What’s your dream job?
What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?
Tulum, Mexico. Great food scene. The vibe is unparalleled.
Where do you go in New-York City if you have a couple of hours to kill?
A local juice bar.
What’s the thing you LOVE to do in New-York City but never actually do?

It’s a Saturday night and the mood is right – where do you go in New-York City to party?
It’s your last day in New-York City – how do you spend your time?
I’d go to Lombardi’s. It was the first meal I had here, way back when I was a student, where I finally felt like a true New Yorker. I’ll never forget that night. I would end my last day in NYC the same way.
What’s the one place a first-time visitor in New-York City can’t miss?
I like to send first time visitors to places out of their comfort zone. Freeman’s used to be a top choice. Now I’d say Karasu.
