Deborah Needleman, founding editor of Domino

Johnny Iuzzini, Head, Judge on “Top Chef Just Desserts
"Danny Seo is just like Martha Stewart, if Martha threw parties using an old garden hose, empty liquor bottles and Kool Aid packets. What everyone else sees as remnants of a frat party gone amok, he sees as materials to host a killer affair.”

He is filled with ideas for the most unexpected projects, whether practical, whimsical, or both.”
