Soho’s City Grit should be on your radar, no doubt about it. A culinary salon – it is the brainchild of Food & Wine’s Sarah McSimmons and is quite the popular spot for exclusive dining experiences. These supper-club like dinners are hosted by McSimmons herself and a roster of emerging chefs looking to show NYC what they’ve got cooking!
Unlike a supper club these dinners are a little bigger (roughly 70 people) and are ticketed so anyone can experience City Grit. Set in an old school-house in Nolita, the vibe is warm, friendly and fun. Oh ya and did I mention all the decor is available for sale! Yep, enjoy your meal and if you like what you’re sitting on or eating on, you can take home with you that night!
Past events and guest chefs have included Chef Leanne Wong (of Top Chef fame), a Breakfast for Dinner series, a “Last Supper” series and many more!
Next week, City Grit is diving into Spring with a four-night dinner series from Chef David Santos (a Per Se and Bouley alum) starting next Thursday, March 1st at 7:30pm! The first dinner may be March Madness themed but you won’t find hot dogs and burgers at this food celebration… this multi-course meal will feature ingredients such as eggplant, sea bream, nutmeg, rye and absinthe!!! Tickets are $85 and can be purchased here !!!! A selection of wines will also be made available for purchase! The three other themes include an “Exploring Minnesota,” “Ode to the Oyster,” and an introduction to Portuguese-Japanese fusion aka Japaguese!
If you can’t make it to a dinner by Santos, keep a dining experience at City Grit fresh in your mind as it’s only going to get bigger and better!
