Delicatessen NYC

Within a few minutes of stepping foot inside of the very happening dining room, we looked at each other and wondered, “What the heck took us so long to hang out in this awesome space!”  It may have taken a while, but here we were,  finally at Chef Michael Ferraro’s Soho hotspot, Delicatessen NYC.  Greeted by a beautiful bottle of cold Ferrari Champagne, Michael told us to get ready, for we were in for a wild ride!  And so, an evening of complete culinary insanity was upon us!

One of our favorite events that we wait all year to experience is the Big Apple BBQ Block Party!  Over the years we have made more than just friends with these incredible pit-masters from across the country, many of them have adopted us as family.  This year was simply stellar!  We ate our way through the entire festival and enjoyed the most incredible BBQ ever!   

Our Top 5 Favorite Coffee Brewers

Think it’s easy buzzing all over the place, attending multiple events day after day?  Without being properly dosed with caffeine, MWD would grind to a halt!  Coffee is our delivery system of choice for the crystalline xanthine alkaloid, better known as caffeine.  But, the pleasure of coffee is really what its all about.  We are certified coffee lovers and passionate about the brew.  

We were talking the other day about our love and passion coffee and decided to see for ourselves which coffee brewers top our list.  The experiment was pretty straight forward, we would use a single origin coffee bean, grind it ourselves to maintain the highest level of freshness and use purified spring water.  We asked a number of coffee manufacturers to send us what they consider to be their best brewers and our coffee machine throwdown was under way!

When our Celebrity Cruises “family” comes into town, there is no doubt that we will be there.  This time, it would be an indulgent and immersive culinary experience at one of New York’s most incredible event spaces, Glass Houses.  In keeping with Celebrities focus of the extraordinary, some of their top chefs were flown in along with our good friend and Top Chef Seattle winner, Kristen Kish.  Oh yes, this was bound to be a epic night!

Oceana

We are big fans of seafood and there is one restaurant which has been delivering some of the finest and most inspired here in NYC for almost two decades, Oceana.  Having been a major player for so long, Oceana does not rest on its famed history.  Executive Chef Ben Pollinger pushes the boundaries of bold American seafood and with strokes of utter brilliance.  Oceana is simply incredible.  

The Village Voice Choice Eats Tasting Event

The Seventh Annual Village Voice Choice Eats Tasting Event was simply awesome!  No doubt that Choice Eats has become one of New York’s premier foodie events, and for good reason.  With over 60 incredible restaurants representing all five boroughs of the city, the shear magnitude of the down-right stellar food is bordering on insanity, which we personally have zero problems with!  The production team that spent the better part of a year preparing for the massive feast, delivered in a big way.  As we attend so many culinary events on a monthly basis, we can honestly say that this was by far, one of our favorite!
