American Table Opening Party from Marcus Samuelsson on Vimeo

Last week, we showed you some exclusive photos from the pre-opening party of Marcus’ new restaurant, American Table Cafe & Bar. Now we’ve put together a video of highlights from the event, including the debut of the “Cap Cam”—which gives us a first-hand perspective from key players in the restaurant.

To experience American Table Cafe & Bar up close, visit us at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center at 1941 Broadway, 212.671.4200.

One of my favorite aspects was also seeing Food Republic there in their W Austin test kitchen and interview lounge. They caught up with some of my good friends, like Andrew Zimmern and Tim Love.

I even sat down with Tim for an extended talk about BBQ, food cultures, and traditions in our restaurants. Check out the video of our interview below and for more Austin Food & Wine Festival coverage, check out Food Republic here. Read More
