To kick off the New Year, I launched a new column with Departures Magazine, which covers the absolutely essential F&B news from around the globe. There are a hefty amount of openings and events I covered in the first edition, but a few of the goings-on that I’m most looking forward to checking out are:
The new three-star Michelin chef Guy Savoy’s intimate oyster bar L’Huitrade in Paris, where he’s sourcing bivalves from local fisheries; the opening of chefs Rich Torrisi and Mario Carbone of the Parm/Torrisi/Carbone empire new coastal Italian concept Santina on NYC’s High Line; and critically acclaimed Tokyo-based Ivan Ramen finally taking online reservations for up to six people, meaning I can finally bypass the lines at their Clinton Street ramenya.
My to-do list for 2015 is getting bigger by the minute! You can take a peek at the full January’s edition here.
