The event was hosted by Gansevoort Meatpacking’s latest restaurant Toy, which features Asian cuisine in a chic nightlife environment. Patti has always loved sake, but her strict gluten-free diet is what prompted her to become a partner and owner of the growing brand. According to the dating expert, it was a perfect matchup.
Guests of the evening enjoyed custom created cocktails from mixologist and Food Network star Josh Lyons, along with inventive hors d’oeuvres from the chefs at Toy. Our favorite concoction was the Dragon’s Milk – a combination of TY KU’s delicious Coconut Nigori sake (amazing!), along with muddled lemon, cucumber and mint. So refreshing and light!
Also in attendance was Dr. Emma Sherri, a nutritionist and personal consultant to the svelte lady of the hour, Patti Stanger. Dr. Emma gave out tips that go hand in hand with taking care of your body AND getting the most out of your dating life. She suggests a dinner of sushi and sake for a sexy date, minus the bloating that goes along with cheeses and cream based pasta dishes. Thanks, Dr. Emma!
Attendees topped off the night of educational tasting flights showcasing all four of TY KU’s sakes with a few words from Patti encouraging all the single ladies in the room to embrace her dating tips. Now we know what to drink on our next date (over sushi, of course) and exactly how to pair it!
