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
