Fine dining on the NYC Subway

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

A few months ago, on the 1st of May during the 1 p.m rush hour the second wagon of the L train line from Manhattan to Brooklyn was transformed into a travelling bistro, complete with tables, linens, fine silverware and a bow-tied maître d’hôtel. A group of people who totally didn’t expect anything like that happening on this busy train-line had a chance to enjoy a six-course extravaganza which took only half an hour. A fantastic group called "a razor, a shiny knife" staged this whole shebang hoping to provide a unique and unforgettable experience for the people onboard. The video is 5 minutes long, but it's really worth the time, so grab yourself a cuppa and enjoy it!


Darlings, how much fun would it be to try fine dining made casual? Undoubtedly an experience of a lifetime! (You can read more about it in The New York Times). xo

P.S: Here is my little joy list I shared this morning on Amanda's blog.
P.P.S: 1940's NYC and this awesome Manhattan's rent by hour backyard!

How fun! I had no clue they let you eat on the Subway (sorry practical side came out) but I definitely would have loved to been a part of this.

Tiffany, they usually don't allow eating on the Subway. It was a one-off.
