What is New York cuisine?

 

To me New York cuisine is about international flavors. I love to eat at all of the great, well-known places in the city, but my favorite thing to do is eat all of the items that you can’t get anywhere else in the U.S., or that are at least not executed as well.

Reel Food: Night Kitchen Bakery & Cafe at the James Beard House

 

If you've dined at the James Beard House, you know that the experience includes an opportunity to walk through its storied kitchen and observe the night's visiting chefs at work. It's an exciting bit of behind-the-scenes entrée that you won't find at most restaurants, but it's still just a glimpse of what it takes to pull off a dinner in this one-of-a-kind space. Preparation can involve months of planning and coordination—and sometimes even a rehearsal or two.

 

The JBF Award–winning team at Friday Arts has produced a video about Philadelphia's Night Kitchen Bakery & Cafe planning its first Beard House appearance. The video documents the team's initial menu design and tails them all the way to New York City for their event, which was held in April. The video also features insights from our director of house programming, Izabela Wojcik. Watch below:

What is New York cuisine?

 

The food in New York is unmatched in diversity and styles, from high-end to those hole-in-the-wall finds. The food scene is always changing and evolving, which is so much fun because as frequently as I travel to New York, there is always a huge list of restaurants, markets, and specialty shops that I want to go to. I always leave New York already planning my next trip in my mind. It truly is a melting pot.
