Bouley and Bradley are childhood friends who worked together in the ’80s building the original Bouley restaurant (see photo at left). Attendees can expect some kitchen theater, with the open kitchen setting offering a full view of culinary genius in action. And of course, a bounty of food will come out of that kitchen all night long: the four-course meal will use proteins and produce from Bradley Farm in New Paltz, fresh day-boat fish from the Cape and a selection of spring’s early harvest. Dessert will be served with organic Costa Rican coffee from the Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation and Inn, a nod to Bradley’s stint overseeing the kitchen at a friend’s Costa Rican bed and breakfast.
This is likely to be a popular event, so buy your tickets soon!
