R&B sensation and Grammy-nominated recording artist Melanie Fiona has many passions. I’m sure we can all guess what the top one is….yes, music! But did you know that she also has a passion for great food?
Her new album “The MF Life” will be released on February 7th, and I’m sure she’ll have a grand Sip, Chat, Chow night out to celebrate!
Check out Melanie Fiona’s Sip, Chat, Chow:
My twin sister Antoinette and I hosted a chic dinner party for our friend Jen Yu’s birthday…and we did it in true Glam Foodie fashion!
The Theme: Toast To Jen Yu
The Invitations: We designed custom branded bottles of prosecco that were hand delivered to each guest
The Venue: Private room at Griffou- great food and a cool vibe
The Decor: We created a unique tablescape for the evening
The Guests: A lively bunch
The Lower East Side has a new resident “hot spot” and it goes by the name of Sons of Essex. Don’t be confused when you approach the resto and a doorman in a fully functional deli greets you. Once you enter, all roads lead to a swanky, rustic, saloon-like speakeasy resto, lounge and bar. The decor is very reminiscent of a scene from HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”. The wooden pillars, old photos, and bookshelves stocked with knick-knacks, books and canisters generates a retro-den feel.
The vibe is amazing, and much of that can be attributed to the dope soundtrack. Hip Hop classics keeps the crowd grooving while noshing and sipping. They kick things up a notch Thursday through Saturday with a live DJ rocking from the pit (sunken lounge area).
The menu is filled with American comfort food classics such as grilled cheese, ribs, lobster pot pie and mac & cheese laced with global seasonings and a creative twist.
Scenesters, celebs, suits and hipsters have descended upon the Mepa newcomer- Catch….and for good reason. The fellas from EMM Group deliver a tri-level spot for the ultimate seafood soiree with Top Chef Champ, Hung Huyn at the helm. The Meatpacking District was in need of a seafood scene, so I welcome the rustic yet chic resto with an open mind and palate.
The Mediterranean and Asian inspired menu with a bevy of shared plates comprised of fish, sushi and a complete raw bar is focused on interesting blends and preparations. And this approach transfers to their well conceived libations too. Service was on point, and the vibrant vibe was present throughout all floors!
