To all my Pinkyfingerup viewers. I would like to take the time to apologize for not updating the site.The last couple of months has been kind of tough on me. Lost that flavor to my life , spice to my days, the taste of food was not the same anymore. With a little time and a few opportunities near I’m starting to get my mojo back. Yes, the mack is back. 2017 should be a great year with more updates on Pinkyfingerup IG page as well as here.
In early November I had the pleasure to attend the New York Taste thrown by New York Magazine. As always, it was a night to remember. Signature dishes were on display by Brooklyn’s darling Olmstead and French favorite Le Coucou. Check out some of the bites that was devoured. Don’t forget, if you see something you like make reservations ASAP. PINKYFINGERUP
