If you live in NYC or have recently visited downtown Manhattan, chances are you’ve heard the buzz about Jack’s Wife Freda, a family-owned restaurant filled with yummy food, beautiful people, and plenty of Instagram-able moments. The woman behind the venture is the instantly recognizable (thanks to her sharp bob and Sol Moscot frames) Maya Jankelowitz, who not only has two cafes under her belt, but two children (Noam, 8, and Benjamin “Bennie,” 4).
