Marcus Samuelsson and Food Republic Help Launch New Bombay Sapphire East

Last Friday, Food Republic joined me at the House of Imagination as the House of Bombay launched a new spirit for the first time in twenty-five years- Bombay Sapphire East. This alluring new liquor took center stage as Food Republic guests filled the stand alone townhouse on Hudson Street appropriately named for the night, the House of Imagination.

Each room in this three-story house was ornately decorated in period pieces and was the ideal setting for a swank cocktail party for the young party crowd. Masseuses offered free mini-massages while others guests enjoyed food from my restaurant Red Rooster Harlem and specialty cocktails made from Bombay Sapphire East.
