On June 27th Underground Eats and Josh Ozersky‘s Meatopia hosted a dinner of a kind never seen before, the Breslin Butchers Ball, a true carnivore’s feast. Pat LaFrieda premiered his crème de la crème of beef, LaFrieda Reserve, with a butchering demonstration and incredible four-course dinner created by Meat Goddess, April Bloomfield. Enjoy this beautiful recap of a truly unforgettable night.
Josh Ozersky takes us around the West Village, passing by some of his favorite restaurants – Commerce, The Little Owl and Takashi. Josh is obviously charmed by the tweeting birds and elegance of its winding streets, but prefers his own raucous neighborhood, “where teenagers vomit on the steps in front of your house.”
At Monday’s Pork and Whiskey Cocktail Party hosted by Studiofeast, in between the pork tartare and the bacon roses, Mike Lee and his team premiered their short film, The Last Meal. Created by Erik Shirai, this is without doubt one of the most beautiful food movies we’ve ever seen.
The “poet of the American diner,” Josh Ozersky, takes British food writer and restaurant critic Jay Rayner, to a classic New York diner, Joe Jr., to introduce him to the “glories of American vernacular cuisine.” On the menu, grilled cheese, burgers, meatloaf, and of course, Josh’s beloved buttered toast.
