What If Syndicate

Regularly asking, “what if?” opened the door to the original concept of Maple & Ash, a steakhouse tailored for an underserved audience: women and foodies. Today, What If Syndicate is the proud parent company to an award-winning portfolio of brands– Maple & Ash, Aya Pastry, Mavens & Aficionados, 8 Bar, and etta– each one a crucial piece of the growing hospitality group led by David Pisor, Jim Lasky, and Danny Grant.
