Marcus Makes His Way To Bermuda

By Meaghan Dillon | March 21, 2014



If you’ve been trudging through this never-ending polar winter like we have, then you’ll understand our dream of eating fresh, local fish with a view of sparkling blue water. At Marcus’s latest project, a pop-up restaurant in Bermuda called Samuelsson at HP, this will be a reality. Starting on June 3 and running through August 3, the pop-up will be a teaser for a larger scale, signature restaurant opening next spring, located at the historical Fairmont Hamilton Princess.

Model Elettra Wiedemann Launches Pop-up Restaurant For NY Fashion Week

We don’t often think about food when we think of fashion and models. If anything, we usually think quite the opposite, as in avoidance of food. These same thoughts have led to much criticism in the fashion industry for overly-thin models and eating disorders. Pressure from the fashion industry, inappropriate food choices, and unavailability of good food options during fashion shows lead to poor eating by models, says Isabella Rossellini’s model daughter, Elettra Wiedemann. This is why Wiedemann is launching a pop-up restaurant for four days during NY Fashion Week at Robert’s Restaurant at the Museum of Arts and Design from February 11th to 14th.

According to Daily Mail UK, the pop-up named Goodness was started by Elettra in order to “accentuate the importance of mentors and maintaining balance when it comes to outside interests,” including her own interest of proper nutrition and health. The pop-up will feature 4 top chefs, including Mario Batali, Leo Forneas of Robert, Alain Allegretti of La Promenade des Anglais and Julian Medina of Toloache, serving up cuisines from Italian to Mexican.

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.
