I’ve been busy like a motherfucker today — thus the sparse posting.
Our GM, bar consultant, and director of security were busy interviewing candidates for the club’s staff for the fourth straight workday today at he club. And while they were interviewing about 60 people today I was meeting with our publicist, our creative director, and a candidate for the Friday night DJ residency — HIRED — while also stopping by to listen in on some of the interviews as they took place.
Then, late this afternoon we did a food tasting of some of the possible happy hour small plates we’re going to be offering at the club.
Short ribs, potato puree, veal gravy, pea pods and pearl onion — $7
Kimchi rice topped with fried quail egg, pork belly and caviar — $6.
In the center is melon and chorizo salad with feta, cilantro, carrot and a smokey vinaigrette — $6. While on the right is chilled asparagus soup with Parmesan custard, florals, and Parmesan tuile — $7.
We also had Pork Lumpia with Nuoc Mam — $3. But I didn’t get a picture of that.
Anyway, the food was amazing. The presentation stunning. And the prices totes reasonable.
And that’s what I did today that caused me to be derelict in my duties to the blog.
Please forgive me.
