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.
When Josh Ozersky asked us to come on board with helping promote Meatopia, to be honest we really didn’t know what to expect. The festival has been around for 8 years, and to be honest, none of us had attended a past one, although we’ve always heard great things. So we were anxious & excited when Saturday, September 8 rolled around.
The Men Who Dine are ready for Meatopia!! Are you?! Meatopia is a meat lover’s paradise. This is one event you do not want to miss. If you haven’t purchased your tickets yet visit http://meatopia2012.eventbrite.com/ & enter discount code “Meatopia-MWD” at checkout for a special Men Who Dine discount!! See you Saturday!!
For those of you out there that are meat lovers and have never heard of Meatopia, you are sorely deprived. Meatopia which is considered the “Woodstock of Edible Animals” is the brainchild of our friend Josh Ozersky (www.ozersky.tv). This year’s festivities will be taking place on Saturday, September 8 on Randall’s Island in NYC and promises to be the biggest and baddest Meatopia, yet!
Two worlds “meat” at Osteria Morini! Join Josh Ozersky & the Men Who Dine at Meatopia!
It’s not everyday, you get to celebrate the release of a new cookbook with an awesome chef like Seamus Mullen of Tertulia. This was the case last night. We attended Seamus’ party at Tertulia with our great friend Mike Colicchio. We enjoyed a plethora of sangria and Spanish tapas. The paella was absolutely phenomenal. Tertulia is one of those places that you’d be remiss in not dining at at least once. Seamus’ book “Hero Food” is a beautifully written and thoughtful cookbook. It’s a book that every home cook and chef should have in their library and refer to often. We do!
