Zagat Presents ‘NYC Vintage Dinner Series’
NEW YORK, Dec. 1 2008 - At 10:00 AM on Thursday, December 4, Zagat Survey and 16 leading restaurateurs will hold a press conference and photo opportunity at Le Bernardin (155 W. 51 St.) to kick-off a two month long Vintage Dinner Series. Each participating restaurant will replicate a great menu from the 19th century serving dishes and drinks that have disappeared from our culinary culture over the past hundred years.
Participants include: Adour, Aureole, Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Bouley, Cafe des Artistes, Chanterelle, Daniel, Del Posto, Gramercy Tavern, Jean Georges, La Grenouille, Le Bernardin, Per Se, Le Cirque, Ouest and Picholine. Experts such as Stanley Lobel of Lobel’s Meats and Dorian Mecir of Dorian’s Seafood Market are assisting the restaurants in identifying cuts of meat, poultry, fish and drinks appropriate to the period.
Each restaurant will host one prix fixe Vintage Dinner, priced on par with its regular menu (all inclusive of food, drinks, tax and tip), with a portion of the proceeds to be donated to such charities as Meals on Wheels and City Harvest.
Breakfast refreshments will be served.
