Their newly redesigned and renovated facilities on the 8th floor of Macy’s Herald Square was completed in December, and is now open as one of the most iconic culinary destinations in NYC.
Naturally, the occasion called for delicious food, courtesy of Chef Gabe Thompson and Epicurean Events. Signature hors d’oeuvres were passed around and guests enjoyed an assortment of delicious shared plates, including: fluke crudo with pineapple, dell’anima chicken spiadini with broccoli rabe pesto, ricotta crostini with honey and hazelnuts, chorizo-wrapped shrimp, L’Apicio rigatoni, and tomato gorgonzola. The favorite of the night seemed to be the grilled cheese tremazzini triangles and the arancini sausage and fontina.
