FORKING TASTY SUPPERS is a roaming supper club that recreates the lost practice of dinner time. In our house, dinner time was a chance to bond, eat and laugh with family and friends. We restore this tradition by pairing simple, bold cuisine with a uniquely comfortable atmosphere.
As we enter our fourth season we decided to twist things up a bit. This year we are putting our Italian-American heritage front and center. We’ll be pulling together everything we learned from mom and grandma and sliding it across the table for you to enjoy. Each dinner will reach back two generations to the original Italian cuisine our Italian-American staples were based on. Think Tuscan menu, Roman meal or Sicilian feast. Mouth watering yet? Along with the meal, and in Forking Tasty tradition, we’ll be pairing the meals with Italian movies from Mobster favorites to Italian classics.
Hop on the list to be notified of upcoming dinners. We promise you will always leave with a few new friends and a very full belly. Check out some of our past dinners below and we hope to see you soon.
More of our Suppers:
Our suppers are an ever-changing experiment in creativity, both culinarily and experientially. Some dinners take place on a secret 60-foot deck under the glow of a huge movie screen. Other evenings pop up in a commandeered restaurant for just one night. Sometimes we even curate dinners to specific audiences as you’ll see below on the sign up list. We are always discovering new places to host our dinners and constantly inventing new dishes to pair with these distinctive locations.
You talkin’ to me?
The season 4 opener of REEL TASTY was quite the oasis of an evening. It may have taken us a while to get going this year but we kicked off with a bang. The night itself was an unexpected 84 degree evening complete with a slight breeze. Sandwiched between two blistering hot weeks in July, we lucked out is an understatement. Read more.
Ariba! Ole! and Amigos!
The season 3 finally of REEL TASTY went off better than we could have ever expected. Again we bit off a little more than we could chew. In the end the Mexican fiesta, with our favorite three amigos, was a pinata smash hit. Although we didn’t have an actual pinata we did have everything else very well represented form pork to beans to tequila. Read more.
The great escape finally happened.
When hurricane Irene blew in we didn’t know if this dinner would ever happen and we never thought a “true” escape from New York would be necessary. Luckily we got it back on the calendar ironically a day before perhaps the most somber escape from New York ever. On September 10, we filled a table of 20 to celebrate NY, it’s food and the sci-fi, 80′s cult classic Escape from New York. Read more.
