Sarma Melngailis started her career by earning a degree in financial matters from the University of Pennsylvania. She later worked at several investment firms before recognizing that her passion lies in the field of food. So, she pursued her dream and enrolled at the French Culinary Institute in New York. She soon opened a cafe called the Commissary in New York City. She later expanded it and opened the first store outside New York, in San Antonio.
In the early years, the restaurant was successful. But it went downhill when her employees launched a walkout for not being paid. It was eventually closed in 2015. After the closure of her restaurant, Sarma began to make controversial claims like she had immortality and would share it with her dog, Leon. She claimed that she inherited this immortality from her grandfather, but later she revealed that this was a lie.
After her relationship with her husband was dissolved, she has been struggling to maintain her lifestyle. She has now decided to sublet her place and move to a different location to work on her memoir. Until then, she makes her income by writing and doing podcasts. She also focuses on her social media presence and keeps an active profile.
