Back to the Future Dinner

all photos by Kun Kim Doc, this is heavy! It was over two months ago now that the Deloreon and MJF blessed the deck with their 80’s epic time travel tale. Let’s blame it on a rip in the time space continuum that caused us to delay this recap for so long. Truth is we wanted to highlight some of...

Vicki Cristina Barcelona Dinner

all photos by Kun Kim Olé Tapas! Last week we brought a little bit of Catalonia to Brooklyn with our 18 dish Spanish tapas feast. As we were finalizing the menu we just couldn’t bring ourselves to edit out any of the dishes. We cut it all different ways and the traditional, simple recipes...

San Francisco Italian Treat Supper

7 courses and counting Every once in a while the timing works out so we can share a kitchen with some of our closest collaborators. Two weeks ago I found myself in the kitchen with long time friend and chef, Ben Long. His recent trip to Italy and my heritage spawned an idea to create a traditional...

King Kong Dinner

Talk about a backdrop. It’s very rare that we pull off a dinner that has such direct connection between the location and the film we’re screening. This was that kind of perfect storm. I moved into my office on 34th and fifth about two years ago. Day two I wandered up to the roof and saw...

All Bird Dinner

Tweet this! It all started a few months back over some stiff drinks and a few oysters. Three food fanatics, me one of them, sipped and slurped as we brainstormed dinner themes. As the night grew longer the ideas piled up. Some good, some bad. As a counter idea to the unique but crazy thought of an...

Bronx Tale Dinner

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...

CMO Dinner

My friend and west coast supperclub counterpart have long talked about a supperclub collaboration. Until last week the closest we’ve come were a few test dinners and email exchanges over potential menu items. That all changed last Thursday night in a secret kitchen in North Beach San Francisco. In...

The Three Amigos Dinner

photo credit: Kun Kim 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...

Escape from New York Dinner

photo credit: Kun Kim 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...

Blaxploitation Dinner

We’ve been waiting to execute this dinner for a long time. Almost as long as you’ve been waiting for this recap. Apologies, it’s been crazy busy. The genre itself has some really fun flicks but we played deep into it not only with the food but right down to the menu design. Details...

Caddyshack Dinner

Our season opener was a hole-in-one but not without it’s series of sandtraps. The boys from Caddyshack graced the screen while Aimee and I did our best to whip up our fanciest country club fare amidst the formidable obstacles namely, mother nature. For those who are unfamiliar with our...

The Lost Hour Supper

A peek through the lowered rollgate revealed a narrow table of twenty that was nestled in between the towering wine shelves and the purposely dark hum of a refrigerator bank. Through the steel and glass you could hear only muffled conversation, the clang of plates and the reverberation of laughter...

Austin Powers Dinner

The British invaded the REEL TASTY deck last month with it’s comfort classics and it’s, now icon, international man of mystery. Aimee and I spun up our take on some of those classics while Austin Powers provided the entertainment. For those who are unfamiliar with our dinners, Reel Tasty...
