Homage to American Cuisine,
a Restaurant Dining Experience
Collaborating with Chef Marc Forgione, Butter and Egg Road curated an exclusive "The Way We Used to Eat" tasting menu, an homage to the best of American Cuisine, new and old. Presenting a multi-course, wine pairing menu, the evening featured a re-imagination of American classics, as well as favorite dishes from his father, Larry Forgione's, iconic 1980s restaurant, An American Place.
As part of the experience, American Cut set up a pop-up chef's table in the private dining room, where Chef finished each course and shared the story of his family's culinary lineage. This made for a deeply personal experience for both Chef and guests.
Kosher Korean Dinner,
a Private Dining Experience
For a private dinner party, we invited Michelin-Star Chef Hooni Kim to re-create his favorite Korean dishes from his two NYC restaurants, Danji and Hanjan, for a special, one-night-only Kosher experience. This was not only the first time Chef Kim had prepared a Kosher menu, but also the first time many of the guests had tasted Korean fare.
A truly innovative culinary conversation between two very different food cultures, Chef Kim presented each course and throughout the meal, shared his expert tips on how to cook Korean fare, kosher!
Bonding on Bond Street,
an On The Road Experience
Drawing upon a client's passion for real estate and food, we custom-built a roving on the road experience down Bond Street. A quaint cobblestone street in NoHo, Bond Street warrants some of NYC's biggest real estate price tags, in part due to the unique architecture and art installations.
Coupling the incredible real estate developments is some of the city's best dining haunts. On one end of the block, you have Mile End Sandwich, a Jewish delicatessen committed to breathing new life into old-world traditions and classic deli flavors. On the other end, tucked away in a landmarked 1830s townhouse, you have The Smile, an American tavern with a seasonally focused menu and cozy atmosphere.
Guests were immersed into the world of Bond Street with an exclusive moveable feast down the block. Beginning with cocktails at the Smile, guests met the culinary team and learned the story of their growing, seasonally inspired, empire.
Following, guests were treated to a private 20-minute talk on the street's distinctive, and sometimes controversial, architecture and public art projects.
To close, guests sat down with the owners of Mile End Sandwich to enjoy some nosh on reimagined deli bites and beer. As a parting gift, each guest took home bagels chips from the newly opened Nolita fan-favorite bagel shop, Black Seed Bagels, courtesy of a joint ownership between Mile End and The Smile proprietors.
