Cooks and Books fall lineup
For our Cooks & Books Series, we have a new policy: we will now include tax and gratuity upfront in the ticket price. This means that you won't receive any bill at the end of the evening; it will all be included in the cost of the ticket. So the per person price includes: all courses, wines, tax, gratuity, and a copy of the featured book. To make reservations, please book online at our website (through Brown Paper Tickets).
September 11th, 8:45pm at Cascina Spinasse: After years of reviewing restaurants for The New York Times, Frank Bruni can sit down with us and have dinner -- without a disguise and without taking notes! In a celebration of the beloved Italian food of his childhood (and his new book Born Round: The Secret History of a Full-Time Eater), we will be sharing pasta and wine with Frank at Cascina Spinasse, following his Words & Wine event and interview. One seating at 8:45pm, with menu created by new chef Jason Stratton: $190 per person.
September 14th , 6:30 pm at Lark: We will be sharing dinner with Langdon Cook, author of The Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager. John Sundstrom and Langdon Cook will be spending the weekend foraging the Northwest -- and then creating a dinner for us out of the riches they find. $120 per person.
September 20th, 6:30 pm at Serafina: A Sunday Supper with international pasta guru Guiliano Hazan, with dinner by exec chef Dylan Giordan and inspired by Hazan's Classic Pasta, How to Cook Italian and the new Thirty Minute Pasta. $150 per person.
October 26th , 6pm at The Ruins: William Grimes, former New York Times restaurant critic and author of Appetite City: A Culinary History of New York will join us for a delicious tour of courses created from some of New York's iconographic restaurants. We'll start with a classic cocktail (from his earlier book, Straight Up and On the Rocks: The Story of the American Cocktail) and some oysters -- then take a trip (menu-wise) through some of the great restaurants of the century! $200 per person.
November (date TBD), 6pm at Bastille: Ever wondered what Thomas Keller cooks at home when he gets in late from Per Se or the French Laundry? Now you'll get to find out when we sit down with Thomas for a family style dinner of his favorite American classic foods, as featured in his new book, Ad Hoc at Home. $190 per person.
*We are hoping to add a Cooks & Books event with David Chang later this fall, inspired by his new book, Momufuku — details to come as we get it set! For more information on our Cooks & Books Series, go here.
There is also a Words and Wine for Bruni also on 9/11.
