Bright Lights, Big Ziti: Good-time Guys Upend the Food World Order
From The New York Observer – Written By Josh Ozersky 11/26/13
The annual White Truffle Dinner is about to start at SD26, and the Men Who Dine are at the center of the action. The occasion is a special one, even by the standards of New York gastrocrats; each table at the famed Italian luxury restaurant has an entire white Alba truffle as big as a fist on it, of the kind that even world-class establishments only have two or three of at a time. Typically, a diner might get a few shavings laid on, with a courtly flourish, by some liveried captain; here, you just take it and grate as much as you want.
There are few events held anywhere on the face of this Earth that can compare to the Annual Truffle Gala at SD26. Over 4500 grams White Alba Truffles were transported into the United States by Italy’s most famous truffle hunter, many as large as softballs. Placed onto each table in SD26′s spectacular dining room, was a pile of these babies ready for the very lucky guests to shave copious amounts at will onto each course of some of the best Italian food we have ever had. Yes friends, this is a pure and utter fantasy meal.
How can one restaurant consistently engage your senses, continuously push the culinary envelope delivering World-class cuisine and unrivaled service to earn the title of #1 Most Popular Restaurant in NYC an unprecedented nine times? Simple, at the age of 27, Danny Meyer launched Union Square Cafe and changed the landscape of American dining forever. It’s been over 20 years since either of us have dined at Union Square Cafe. That in itself speak volumes for one of New York’s most beloved restaurants as there are so few establishments that have the longevity of Union Square Cafe.
What do you get when you mash-up Jewish and Latin cuisine with Chefs Eric Greenspan and Roberto Treviño?
