Toro to Tapas. Here’s the skinny on the fat.

Starts: 6:30pm (cocktails and appetizers)
Ends: 11pm (really, when the film is over)
Donation: $85 (make a reservation below)
Movie: Vicki Cristina Barcelona

Hola Espania! Our next dinner has tons of inspiration packed into every moment and morsel. From the menu to the movie to the table we’ve got this Catalonian thing down. Inspiration is drawn heavily from Missus Tasty and my journey through Spain last December. We ate our way through Barcelona for almost a week before surrendering to the jamon gods. Ant’s frequent ports of call in Barcelona make it one of his many second homes. He’s got snack spots in town that locals don’t even know exist. In short, we can eat our way from Barcelonetta to Park Guell without missing a beat. Now, we’re turning that knowledge and excitement into a multi-course evening under the stars and our big screen.

The movie holds just as special a place in our hearts as Catalonian cuisine does. I admit, my wife has not shot at me (yet) but there is nothing more we love than a spitfire, super gorgeous, mega intelligent woman speaking her mind in inappropriate places. (That might not be completely true) If the food isn’t caliente enough the on screen antics of Maria Elena will certainly fill the void. Mix in the suave Juan Antonio and two American woman looking for adventure, one more than the other, and we’ve got ourselves a supper.

Ant and I hope you can join us for what we promise will be an unforgettable evening with lots of personal stories to accompany the many, many, many (did we say many?) dishes we’ve crafted for this 20 seat ONLY tapas throwdown.


It starts with $275 per pound ham. If that’s not enough to signal a killer menu the food cascade will shower the table with some 15 courses at moment. They are small tapas style courses remember but there will be plenty of bites to fill that stomach twice over. Come hungry. Expect Catalonia traditional staples with our Italian-American twists. As always, a selection of beer and wine will be served along the way from aperitivo to postres.

More on Reel Tasty:

Jason and Anthony pair a 5 course gourmet meal for 20 friends, some new and some old on a HUGE deck in Brooklyn. As the name implies, we will be screening a movie during the meal. Don’t worry, there will still be plenty of time pre-entree to mingle, catchup and meet some new friends. Once the sun goes down we will role the film in all its two story high glory. This is an experiment, so we are not sure how much silence or chatting will go on. That’s for you to decide. We hope you will come out and enjoy yourselves with us this summer. See you on the deck.

  1. […] The dining blog and supper club Forking Tasty is back this month with one of their “Reel Tasty” dinners on July 27. The “Reel Tasty” dinner series takes place on a secret rooftop deck in Brooklyn where brothers Anthony and Jason, the founders of Forking Tasty, cook up an amazing meal to share with friends and strangers while a movie projects on a the side of a two-story building. This Saturday the brothers have drawn inspiration from their travels in Barcelona and are offering a Catalonian tapas party with a screening of Woody Allen’s Vicky Christina Barcelona.
