2015 was an unbelievable year and we experienced some truly incredible cuisine from across the country.
Check out this video montage of Men Who Dine 2015 – A Year In Food!
It’s that time of year and the Men Who Dine have put together a list of some of our favorite gift items for 2015.

“Italian cuisine is very simple; a cuisine of ingredients and products. If the products are no good, there is no Italian cuisine, very simple” – Gianfranco Sorrentino
No truer words have been spoken and that sentiment is the basis for what is arguably one of the finest Italian restaurants in the country, Il Gattopardo. Over the years we have had the opportunity to experience a few wine events at the old Il Gattopardo location just a few doors down from the Rockefeller Mansion that is now home to this incredible restaurant. Finally, we had the chance to sit down at the new location and have our minds blown by the extraordinary hospitality of Gianfranco and staff.
Without technology, Men Who Dine could not exist, period. We couldn’t bring you with us as we experience some of the best in food and drink across the country, and that would really suck! We received an email from PayPal saying that they wanted us to take us out for a night on the town to check out a feature on their app that allows you to split the tab and pay each other back without having to open up your wallet and grab cash. We are serious food enthusiasts and also serious tech geeks, so this sounded really cool. We set up a call with PayPal’s Head of Global Consumer Initiatives, Pablo Rodriguez, to get a run through of the app and learn more about its functionality. After our conversation, we realized just how amazing this app is and we were totally psyched to give it a try!
The 2015 New Taste of the Upper West Side kicks off again this May with an exciting lineup of new and returning restaurants, world-class chefs and celebrity hosts for an unforgettable three-night culinary celebration. The annual event, which was created by the Columbus Avenue Business Improvement District (“BID”), a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit, donates all net proceeds to the local community for neighborhood improvement and beautification projects such as the Columbus Avenue BID’s Sustainable Streetscape project, and other beneficiaries as the Wellness in the Schools program, Greenhouse Classroom, Citymeals-on-Wheels and Theodore Roosevelt Park.
