The Bronx Academy Of Letters recently celebrated its tenth birthday of helping kids get a foot in the door of the arts career of their dreams at the Metropolitan Pavilion recently with the help of host Anthony Bourdain who tells us that he got involved with the charity via his agent who, like him, is big on helping education-oriented charities for kids. The heavy hitter eateries from Manhattan and Brooklyn were in attendance including Prune, Momofuko & Momofuku Milk Bar, Del Posto Babycakes NYC, Mission Chinese, Briskettown, Roberta's, Chez Sardine and Boulud Sud. Five different specialty drinks were whipped up and served by Jim Meehan of PDT and his highly creative and friendly mixology staff. I fell in love with the Rosemary Society cocktail consisting of Bombay Gin, Grey Goose Vodka, Lemon Juice, Benedictine, St. Germain and bitters.
I have to say that the Fatty Brisket served by Briskettown was so moist and delicious that it made me want to move to Williamsburg just to be able to have it more often. Roberta's Margarita Pizza selection was something I partook of several times and the world's most gourmet grilled cheese was served at Che Sardinem (more specifically, it was Foie Gras Grilled Cheese)!
