Just around 450 descended on Bryant Park last Wednesday in celebration of Eat Drink Local week. ‘wichcraft’s executive chef, Mike Barbera, and his team created a spread that was unbelievable!
Last week we kicked off the summer season with a taste of Long Island in the heart of downtown Brooklyn at Brooklyn Uncorked.

Martinican codfish fritters, Portuguese bacalhau, Bajan plantains, Ukranian pierogi, Long Island wine, Irish cheeses–nope, it’s not our food bucket list. We actually ate all that–and more–last week at Edible Escape, our global travel tasting party at the gorgeous Angel Orensanz Foundation.
