Old School and New School in One Night

Two nights ago I had the opportunity to eat the food of two great chefs. Started the night at Chanterelle in Tribeca, the restaurant of Carol and David Waltuck. They threw a party for their new cookbook, with some good food being passed around, but some of the guests were like vultures, they wouldn't let the waitstaff make it 5 inches from the kitchen before their trays were empty. Kicked back some bubbly and heard what David Waltuck had to say before getting out of that packed place. While listening, I realized that the lady standing next to me trying to stay away from the crowd was my girl Martha -- Martha Stewart that is. She rocks.

We left the old school, on to the new school. Govind Armstrong, who is opening his restaurant Table 8 in the new Cooper Square Hotel, hosted a tasting. Went up the elevator and next thing I knew I was in a sweet loft apartment with endless amounts of good food. Didn't stay long because I was still recovering from the NYC Food and Wine Festival, like most of New York is. That’s all I got.
