We were invited by Vail Mountain and Vail Brasil for an exclusive 5 day ‘Behind the Scenes Experience’ in the beautiful town of Vail.

This was an amazing corporate project we organized in partnership with Azzi & Co – a PR agency based in New York City.

The group explored the town, #UnCovered its secrets, had fun skiing – and falling a lot, ate at the best restaurants and had a few sport adventures high up in the mountains!

The group had renowned Influencers from the U.S. and Brazil. We do hope you enjoy our post and pictures!

Oh! We before heading to Vail, we had a 2 day pitstop in Denver, where we will also posted about what we discovered. Then, we had a beautiful drive up to our ski destination.

Having dinner 10,300 feet up in mountain!!!

So, the supreme restaurant in Vail, the Game Creek Restaurant, is not actually down in the valley, but high up in the mountains!

The experience started off by getting a gondola and going up, up, up in the mountains, with an amazing night view of the valley and a moon light…hard to describe, illuminating the beautiful lined up trees while we flew through them…

Then we jumped into one of those huge snowcats that cruise through the mountains like wild animals in their natural habitat! So cool!

The restaurant is an European style chalet, with a cozy ambience, great wine list and fabulous food! I had the heirloom tomatoes, the best butternut squash I have ever eaten, ratatouille and for desert the pear sticky toffee pudding, all paired with a perfect choice of red wine!!!

The experience is not half as fun, without mentioning extremely exclusive, as actually doing it in real life!

The Game Creek Restaurant is open from 6 – 8:30pm to the public for dinner, after that, only members are allowed in!

Hours:
Winter: Tuesday – Saturday: 5:30pm – 9pm
Summer: Thursday – Saturday: 5:30pm – 8:30pm | Sunday: Brunch 11am – 2pm
*Reservations are required!*

Location: Game Creek Bowl, in the back bowls of Vail Mountain

We landed in Denver, Colorado, 2 days prior of heading up towards our breathtaking skiing experience in Vail. So, we decided to explore the city a bit.

Denver is a very charming city, and we had a great time just exploring it and walking around.

The city has a little over 680,000 people and it houses some of the most amazing 19th-century buildings, museums and landscapes.

These are a few of the places we went to:

For our healthy start in Denver, we went for lunch at True Food Kitchen. We do love healthy, seasonal and sustainable food, so it was the perfect place! Yes, they do have other restaurants in other cities across the U.S., but we had never gone there before. Nonetheless, they have a very good healthy menu that we really enjoyed.

We coincidently picked the top choices on their menu, and loved them all! These were our dishes:

  • Edamame Dumplings with a delicious white truffle oil
  • A to-drool-for “Inside-out” Quinoa Burger with hummus, avocado, feta, and other great ingredients
  • Winter Ingredient Salad had brussels sprouts, squash, mulberry, pomegranate

Do ask for dessert! They are all extremely tempting, and we just couldn’t get enough. We ordered the Flourless Chocolate Cake. It’s gluten free and vegetarian, with 72{c8399be91965ff06a5fa23750b49beaf0bc09e4b1c94b50d52f75c5d1635bbfd} cocoa, vanilla ice cream, almond butter and caramel. We also tried the Chia Seed Pudding with banana and coconut flakes, that was fantastic!

Last, but definitely not least, we tried the Genmaicha Green Tea with almond milk and vanilla!

And, the best news for us, healthy New Yorkers, is that they’ll be opening a beautiful and huge 3 story place this next fall! So, keep your eyes opened.

At night, we decided to have dinner at a very trendy, relatively new restaurant named Bar Dough. It’s located in the Highlands neighborhood, today considered an upcoming, cool place to live.

We ordered a few different dishes, since we were curious about them all, so we decided to share everything and have a taste of each.

Our choices were: Garlic Bread – in-house made focaccia, parmesan, parsley, Oven Roasted Carrot – farro, chickpeas, carrot, cumin vinaigrette, Grilled Octopus – charred eggplant, caponata, toasted pistachio, mustard frill, King Trumpet Mushroom – guanciale vinaigrette, and for dessert the Fried Dough – served w/ lemon curd, caramel, hot chocolate sauce.

It was all very, very good! Plus the space is great, with a beautiful crowd.

“Fire” away to start off the day!

On our second and last day, we had breakfast at Fire Restaurant, located inside this super cool artsy hotel in Denver, called The Art Hotel. With a beautiful architecture, a fabulous view and a phenomenal service, it’s definitely done with the heART.

They host original art works and collections of 20th and 21st century artists from around the world, which does make a difference when you’re exploring the place!

As Federico explains better:

“The gallery shows a finely curated selection including Venetian glass, Japanese lacquer, ivory carvings, 18th century religious figures and antique jewelry. Another unique focus is de Vera jewelry incorporating rare antique elements such as Roman intaglios and Georgian brooches, with precious gemstones including rose-cut diamonds, baroque pearls and Sardinian coral.”

It is very small, and décor is very simple.

But, then again, who need fancy furniture to eat well, right? The focus is definitely on the food, that is to-die-for!

They only serve the omakase, the chef’s tasting menu, so you’ll have to trust and enjoy!

Not only the experience of searching for it is super exciting, but once you do find it and walk in, it feels like your entering a parallel universe.

The last great tip is one of my favorite restaurants in town!

A perfect thing to do with kids is to take them to a pizza spot! Number 28 is not a preppy place, but I think that’s why it’s so cool!

Today, they have 4 addresses in New York and 2 in Brooklyn. Plthey serve one of the best pizzas in town, considered by many to be the “authentic Neapolitan pizza!”

The ingredients are the best: super fresh, natural, no preservatives and some are even gluten-free. If you are not with that desire to eat pizza, as the kids probably are, they offer a great menu with pasta, salads and meat!

But…I suggest trying their pizza! Lastly, the environment is quite relaxed and the pizza, delicious!”

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.

Their 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 experts. In sum, they can cater an exclusive and memorable experience for you!

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 now.”

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

See you there!
