Remember that cool-sounding Macy’s event I told you about?
Well, I went.
And honestly…it was even better than promised.
How, you ask?
1. Tons of prosecco.
2. An incredible view that most of Manhattan has never enjoyed. That’s right, the Stella 34 restaurant where the event was held, was used as storage until a few years ago. It’s insane that only creepy old mannequins ever enjoyed this world class view.
That’s right, Marcus Samuelsson, Nancy Silverman, Ming Tsai, Marc Forgione, and others all made appearances and were delightful during their speeches.
Chef Samuelsson seemed especially kind and approachable. And his food was fantastic (the doro wat I have previously praised was among the food served ).
And after we heard from the CEO of Macy’s and all of the illustrious chefs, we ate.
We ate Michelle Bernstein’s light squash toast topped with salty, crunchy serrano ham. We ate Stephanie Izzard’s seared tuna over mushrooms and light uni crema.
We ate crab salad topped with creamy avocado and tobiko.
We ate scallops marinated until they were pink, and..
Freshly fired pizzas covered in lemon, cauliflower, and hearts of palm.
Plus, each invitee got a great tote bag filed with a $20 Macy’s gift card, a cookie, and a takeaway glass.
This was absolutely a five star event that rivaled many press events I have attended. It was elegant, well planned, and – most importantly – star studded and delicious!
