What was the food highlight of your year?
Dinner at the chef’s plancha bar at Toro in NYC. It was an amazing meal in an amazing new restaurant. The smoked beef heart, veal sweetbreads, blowfish tails, blood sausage and tripe stew were mind blowing and the bocadillo de erizos is still in my dreams…
What was the music highlight of your year?
Saves the Day playing my favorite (and their best) album, Through Being Cool, at Saint Vitus Bar in Greenpoint as a secret show. I watched from the side of the stage, and sang along to every lyric - it made me feel like a teenager again.
Was there a moment when food and music came together in a memorable way?
We had a big, delicious dinner at Mission Chinese Food after my friend Geoff’s concert. The lovely Danny Bowien brought us everything on the menu, and between sharing delicious bites and drinking ourselves silly, we listened to Lifetime at full blast.
