Grand St. Settlement

Pinky Finger Up had the honor to cover Grant Street Settlement Taste of LES.

Grand St. Settlement expands opportunities for low-income families and individuals by providing culturally relevant services that support community-building, advocacy, self-determination and an enriched quality of life.

Since it’s founding in 1916, Grand St. Settlement has offered a continuum of innovative programs ranging from early childhood and youth development to community support for adults and seniors. We were happy to support. Some of our favorite bites came from Pearl & Ash and Seoul Chicken. Take a look at the pics and support the Lower East Side restaurant scene.

Nights Out: Rising Stars/StarChefs

The StarChefs crew sure knows how to throw a party. This years edition of the Rising Stars New York was a fun filled night of  tasty nights.The 2015 Rising Stars award ceremony was held in the spacious Altman Building in New York. Some of New York’s  top fresh face chefs and bartenders were on hand showcasing some amazing bites and sips  from their menu. My favorite bite of the night  was from Bryce Shuman of Betony.  Uncle Boons, Boulud Sud and Nomad Bar were some of my other top choices. After the event, everyone straddled up and rolled on over to Toro for the after party . Great job Starchefs,  and we are look forward to the 10th annual International Chefs Congress taking place October.
