Underground dining

If you like food and adventure, chances are you’ll enjoy dining at an underground supper club.  These dinners are held in private home a la Andres of the Brooklyn Edible Social Club.  Alternatively they are ambitious affairs such as those held by Mike Cirino at A Razor, A Shiny Knife.

A few weeks ago I travelled with my husband to have dinner with twelve strangers at the Brooklyn Edible Social Club.  Even though we didn’t know a single person, the host and chef Andres, along with his girlfriend did everything to make the group comfortable.  The food was great and the conversation flowed.

A wonderful menu; the corn veloute served over blue cheese and honeycomb was a crowd pleaser, my favorite course was the duck  shown above.  My photos were terrible so these images are courtesy of a fellow diner from a great blog, Morta Di Fame.

A Razor, A Shiny Knife held a fabulous event last weekend at Norwood, a private club in the Village, as part of the Food and Wine festival.  They delivered what they do best; an educational and dramatic culinary experience.  Billed as a  ‘locally’ sourced party with a twist,  referring to their partnership with Future Perfect who provided the service ware, silverware, glasses, linens and art from the New York City area.

An experience worth having.

  1. I must have been sitting on the other side of the table and missed meeting you! Maybe at another supper club? :)
