Salad for President

Saturday, February 8th, 2014

Our good friend Julia Sherman’s blog, Salad for President, is beautifully shot, delightfully curated and written in her voice, so it’s charming, funny, totally quick and friendly, and in the know on all things salad and the creative people she’s tapped to make them.

One that looks incredible that’s on her site right now is this lotus root salad, from the bartender at the restaurant I miss from when I lived down the street in Bed-Stuy.

 

 

Of A Kind

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

Isaac and I made a limited edition product for one of my favorite sites, Of A Kind.

The edition launches tomorrow, but they’ve already posted an article where we talk about working on the Sqirl redesign, and about some of our friends who also collaborate with their loved ones.

we went to Wolves Den to join our good friend Mia in celebration of her 30th birthday.

it.

was.

amazing.

The food was really incredible. I’ll just leave it at that: every bite was fantastic: every dish was stand out, and the meal was so unique I could never even hope to have it again.

I don’t usually eat meat, but my problems with the meat industrial complex don’t really relate to this…and I’ll never turn down an experience (of this caliber), and I liked the idea of the Chef, Craig Thorton, being the expert in deciding what we would eat.  The dishes each had so many ingredients that when Thorton described the first dish, I was worried it would have too much going on…but each unsual combination worked in a delicate, nuanced way.

More info on their site about booking a private meal or joining a dinner, here. And more about Craig in the New Yorker, here.

One callout… my aesthetic palate is way more developed than my actual palate, so my experience was taken down a notch by lack of ambiance. It is cool that you are eating in the chef’s space, but you really do feel that you are eating in someone’s else living room that’s been pushed aside. I think good design (and good art) adds to any experience. That all having been said, the Chef might wonder how I can value what my living/dining area looks like over the aesthetics of the food: because if I were the only one in my house cooking we’d be having kale salad every night.
