Daniel M. Koch

His inner circle calls Daniel Koch the friendliest person in the world, certainly a trait that has contributed to his success as one of the tastemakers of the New York City scene. Together with his identical twin brother, Derek, he runs the boutique hospitality company, The Dual Groupe, and redefined what it means to brunch on the weekend with the iconic “Day and Night” brunches.
