We're back! We took a blog break for a couple months to focus on building the business but that doesn't mean we weren't doing blog-worthy thangs. Time just flies by so fast, though. Blink and you miss it. Wow.
While you were
sleeping tweeting, we had a grand ol' time on January 21 at Mouth of the Border’s supper club, Midnight Brunch: Wild Card Edition. Mad you missed it? Request an invitation by filling out this form. It was a hot and wild celebration, featuring a gluten-free Thai Feast at a chic private home in the Meatpacking District. We had a professional poker player playing co-host and delightful Orient-inspired cocktails created by Mr. Hal Wolin. In the kitchen, we had tons of help prepping and plating by the lovely (and gluten-free eater) Laura Huben as well as our fantastic volunteer staff.
Close to 30 people joined us for our secret rendez-vous. The menu was laced through with fish sauce, citrus, lemongrass, soy sauce and coconut milk; the hallmark flavors of Thailand.Sous for the night: Laura Huben. We kicked the night off with beef sate and peanut sauce with a quick-pickled cucumber salad. We warmed up on a snowy night with the first course of our seated meal: a home style coconut curry chicken soup. We slow-simmered chicken on the bone with lemongrass, adding in lime, soy sauce and cilantro at the end. The main meal was a party on a plate with pineapple fried rice and roasted pork made with local Mangalitsa pork (a heritage breed that is as juicy and fat-marbled as beef) from Mosefund Farm. We played a pair of Aces with two desserts: "nun bananas" (bananas poached in coconut milk and vanilla beans) served with coconut milk custard.
