Fancy Food Show 2009

Wednesday, July 1, 2009

I spent two days (6 hours each day) sampling everything I could at the 2009 Summer Fancy Food Show (held at the Javitz Center). Even though I’ve experienced the show many times, the sheer size never fails to be overwhelming. I have learned how to pace myself, often only taking one bite per sample, trying […]

2009 DIFFA’s Dining by Design: Table Hop & Taste

Monday, March 30, 2009

We told you we were going to the Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) Dining by Design event: Table Hop & Taste….and we did attend, of course. It was really a lot of fun, all these great tablescapes to look at and lots of great stuff to taste, a treat for the eyes and the […]

Dining By Design 2009 on March 29th

Friday, March 6, 2009

We saw DIFFA’s Dining By Design on TV last year and it looked pretty awesome. The Table Hop And Taste Event, on March 29th this year, is the merging of designers, installing innovative spaces, with food from local restaurants. Just check out this image from last year’s event, where David Stark designed the Benjamin Moore […]

Ippudo Media Event

Friday, October 31, 2008

On Wednesday night, Lon and I went to Ippudo‘s Ippudo Media Event: the unveiling of their seasonal dishes. If you’ve been reading Foodmayhem for a while, you know that inviting us somewhere, and giving us lots of free food, isn’t enough to get lavish praise from us. We’re wickedly honest, and with that honesty, we […]

Archipelago Media Preview

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

We were invited to Archipelago‘s Media Preview Archipelago, where we sampled 11 or 12 different signature items that Chef Hisanobu Osaka will be serving at his new restaurant. These were served as hors d’oeuvres so it’s hard to say what it would be like to eat at the restaurant, but I hope the kitchen […]

Cabaret Gourmet

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

We told you last week, we’d be going to Cabaret Gourmet, so of course I’m rushing to post our thoughts on the food. In general, each restaurant’s table was set up beautifully and there was plenty of wine/alcohol. (Lon and I are not drinkers.) There was a comfortable amount of space so that you wouldn’t […]

Choice Eats

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

Choice Eats, a tasting event held by The Village Voice, is an inexpensive ($25 for pre-bought tickets) way to try food from several different restaurants. However, Lon and I don’t feel that it is an accurate way of judging a restaurant because serving food without a kitchen is a very different skill. Some restaurants have […]

Saturday, May 26, 2007

Roger’s brother just happens to be Garrett Oliver, the Brewmaster of Brooklyn Brewery The Brooklyn Brewery and author of The Brewmaster’s Table.
Roger scheduled a special tasting for one of our clients, Restaurant Associates, on Thursday afternoon and I was fortunate enough to attend amongst a roster of top industry professionals. As we waited for two […]
