The Foragers City Grocer opened in 2005 in DUMBO and carries locally grown organic produce, pastured meats and fresh local dairy.

Foragers is your go-to destination for the best, carefully-selected, locally sourced, and artfully prepared food. The demand we saw for clean and ethical foods inspired us to open our market in Chelsea, which also includes a restaurant and wine shop.

All the products featured come from trusted producers, or hand picked from our own farm in Canaan, New York.

The clients like to know where their food is grown, processed and handled.

Plus, they are interested in learning about the entire process and being sure that they are consuming what there is best in the market!

So, as they explain:

“Our sourcing standards ensure that every product you find at our stores is made honestly with all natural ingredients, grown with integrity, and raised humanely.”

This type of market is right up our alley, so we love every single aspect of it, support them, and hope to spread the work to other like minded people.

In addition, the restaurant is called Table. It runs under the direction of Executive Chef, Nickolas Martinez, and is more than a farm-to-table restaurant. They also grow their own food! Therefore, besides a delicious dinner, you must try their brunch that happens on the weekends.

They have a store in Chelsea too. So, if you don’t want to commute all the way into Brooklyn, to shop, you have another great option!

And, if you want to explore other farm-to-table restaurants, we actually recommend heading upstate NY.

There are countless close by day trips that you can plan for a different weekend. For help organizing it all, contact our concierge experts. In sum, they can cater an exclusive and memorable experience for you!

For Corporate requests, contact us and let us know how we can assist.

Hours: Please visit website for store hours of each location.

The Natural Gourmet Institute was founded on the principle that what we eat significantly affects our physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Of course, we couldn’t agree more with this statement, since we are huge believers of “we are what we eat”.

They’ve created a framework for healthy food selection. It’s based on high quality ingredients, concepts of Eastern & Western nutrition and a variety of dietary paradigms.

They offer different types of courses, like the ones below:

  • Summer Immersions: A summer course where you learn not only the theory, but also have hands-on classes;
  • Certificate Programs: Students work and meet accomplished chefs, industry experts and partners;
  • Classes: Some last 5+ days, other 3 days, others only a couple of hours. Student go home ready to experiment in their own kitchen;
  • Professional Training: You’ll master the art of healthy cooking through 600 hours of rigorous, life-changing culinary education.

Furthermore, most of the products used are organic, which we particularly enjoy, since we only shop organic.

Plus, they offer a super unique Friday Night Dinner. This three-course vegetarian dinner is both innovative and beautifully presented. Something New Yorkers love! They charge $45/person, which is a super reasonable price for a NY dinner. And last, it’s a BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle), so feel free to bring in which ever drink makes you smile!

And don’t forget to check out their book store. You’ll find amazing books that are actually pretty hard to find out there.

Alternatively, to organize an experience with friends with true NYC cooking classes or to put together a corporate activity for your clients or team, contact our experts to learn more. It will be an amusing activity for everyone!

Komeeda: A Thanksgiving For Friends, By Friends

Events Up Coming Friendsgiving Komeeda

Do you guys remember of the post about a summer “Dinner Under the Bridge” pop-up by Komeeda we wrote a few weeks ago? Well, here’s another Komeeda pop-up for you – last one of 2015! It’s a Thanksgiving For Friends.

Events Up Coming Friendsgiving Komeeda

We love everything about Komeeda’s Thanksgiving For Friends: Friendsgiving.

Last year, Komeeda hosted the “kommunity’s” members for a multi-course Spanish style tapas meal. This year they are doing it bigger, better and…in Brooklyn! We just love it, after all, we are Brooklyn-based!

They have partnered up with a rustic venue and two of Komeeda’s favorite chefs Chef Florvil Valdez and Chef Paula Ignacio. Both are former chefs from their Showdown event, where chefs compete for the 1st place title!

If you’ve been to their last two Showdowns, you’ve had a couple of their to-die-for culinary creations. Now, they will be teaming up and putting together an innovative multi-course Friendsgiving feast for their kommunity.

Date: Thursday – November 19, 2015
Time: 6:30pm – 9pm
Location: Downtown Brooklyn – exact location will be disclosed 48 hours prior to event only to those with confirmed tickets
Availability: 30 Seats
Tickets: Early Bird RSVP: $55 (SOLD OUT)  |  Standard RSVP: $60


To read about how it all started, read Jabber Al-Bahani’s statement below:

“Waking up in a hostel in Barcelona one morning, a fellow hostel-mate asked… “comida?”

What I assumed would be a quick lunch with an Argentinian hostel-mate, quickly grew into a group lunch with seven people from all over. Australia, Holland, Argentina, Spain, Libya, France, and of course… me the New Yorker.

We enjoyed two hours of food and drink at a mom & pop tapas restaurant off the beaten path, sharing our journeys & dreams for the future; all with no worry of judgement. I never expected to have this unforgettable experience with the random people that I met, but it felt so natural!

Komeeda is an easy way to discover unique gastronomic events, taste exciting new foods, and interact with other interesting guests, in addition to the passionate chefs who want to share their stories.

To find the perfect family-style Ethiopian feast, low-key beer & burger pairing, or whatever dining experience is right for you, explore Komeeda’s events.”

So, if their story excited you, don’t waist more time and go buy your ticket!

See you there!

Gastromotiva began operations in São Paulo in 2006, followed by Rio de Janeiro in 2013 and Salvador in 2014. It will soon open in other cities in Brazil and Latin America.
In addition to Vocational Kitchen Training, we encourage dissemination of Social Gastronomy in Brazil and worldwide. Why? To show food’s powers to transform.
Good work is always recognized.

Gastromotiva has become a bellwether in Brazil for its power to transform not only in the gastronomic market, but also in the third sector. In the name of founder David Hertz, the organization has received awards and tributes which enhance the value to the initiatives and projects undertaken.”


Also, we are very fond of working close to charities in New York and promoting their work. Feel free to reach out and contribute in ways, at your reach.

In addition, if you are a company, and have an upcoming Gala, we work with fantastic customized experiences that can be auctioned to help raise money.

UNFORTUNATELY THIS RESTAURANT IS PERMANENTLY CLOSED!

Created in 2011 by the talented hands of Chef Miguel Trinidad and the dream of Nicole Ponseca, Maharlika will transport you to the distant island of the Philippines.

“Though Filipino food is arguably the original fusion cuisine with its cultural influences from Spain, Malaysia, China, America and indigenous ingredients and flavors, Maharlika Filipino Moderno is not a fusion restaurant.

Moreover, it features a curated selection of Filipino classic dishes as well as inventive dishes that use 100% Philippine ingredients and flavors.”

So, with no big pretension, but with lots of love, the restaurant aims to simply feed you good, traditional, Filipino food. Where? In a very welcoming environment that will possibility remind you of home.

Speaking about, the dishes have rich flavors and great presentation. Some of their typical dishes are:

  • Bibingka – glutinous rice cake w/ toasted coconut, salted egg, keso de bola, guava jam
  • Lumpiang Mini Shanghai – rice paper w/ beef, pork, aromatic vegetables, sweet chili sauce
  • Flip’d Chicken and Ube Waffle – batterless fried chicken, purple yam waffle, caramelized macapuno syrup, anchovy-compound bagging butter
  • Baked Kalderetang Kambing – goat shank, potato, bell pepper, carrot, chili, tomato, farm-fresh baked eggs
  • Uni Palabok – rice noodle, shrimp bisque, sea urchin, fried garlic, pandesal breadcrumbs
  • Kare Kare – oxtail, peanut butter, long beans, eggplant, bokchoy

That said, they are opened for brunch, lunch and dinner all week long, so be sure to stop by!

And, in addition, if you’re interested in their catering services, contact the to see how you can impress your guests.
