Bon Appetit Supper Club
Open only once a year and featuring famous chef offerings, food freebies plus other goodies. The spot on 57th street featured different chefs daily and I was there twice for the food and fun. A chef demo one day and a how-to use a coffee press the next were the featured demos on the day I was there. The food was divided into sandwiches and salads as well as hot food for the day. Almost all were under $10 bangers. The dish on the right was Ben Ford's Atlantic salmon with artichoke and potatoes with a fennel dressing for $9 and was absolutely delicious. The desserts were pretty fab and I had the strawberry, rhubarb, coconut cupcake for a desert which was super tasty. There was a chocolate chip brownie I had twice and was tdf. The second day there were foods featured by Batali and Tyler Florence and I had the clam chowder with leek cream for $6.50 which was richly yum. Free wine and free makeovers with Maybelline as well as a complimentary lipgloss made me wish this pop-up spot stayed a little longer.
