Somewhere in an alternate universe, a person can be engrossed in the wonderful simplicity of street food as they “Ooo,” and “Aaah,” through delectable morsels at runway models strutting the latest in fashion designs.  From the outside, this would seem to be a major cultural clash.  The “higher” and “lower” classes struggle enough in perception of each other without having to comingle in a common space.  Believe it or not, the Global Street Food Pop-Up Cafe pulled off an eloquent and sophisticated mixture of the entire class spectrum.

Last night we kicked-off my Global Street Food Pop-up Cafe in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center during Fashion’s Night Out. The turn-out was great and our street food went flying off the shelves (or street food carts, so to say). In collaboration with Restaurant Associates and with the support of American Airlines, last night’s event and this whole week duration of my pop-up restaurant was made possible. We offered delicious street food dishes like Doro Wat with Injera Bread and Beer-braised Wurst. It was surely a night not-to-be-missed.

Didn’t get a chance to join us for our Fashion’s Night Out event? No worries! My pop-up will still be open for a week until September 15th. But what’s even better than sampling a wide range of international street foods? Sampling them for free! Read More

Street Food Pop-up

As New York City gets ready for its fall fashion events, chefs everywhere are also gearing up for a change in menu to fit the fall season. While most food found during fashion events involve a few amuse-bouches at cocktail parties, I thought “Why not combine both food and fashion in celebration of this exciting time in New York City?” That’s why I and Restaurant Associates teamed up, with support from American Airlines, to bring you Global Street Food Pop-Up, a pop-up street food cafe where we’ll combine international comfort food while featuring a style meet-and-greet with up-and-coming designer Prajje Jean-Baptiste. From September 8th until September 15th, Street Food will feature an eclectic and affordable menu of a wide range of international foods from 10:30am to 11:00pm in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center.
