FEED at FADE! Special Thanks to Nita Nita...

Ready for another installment of Food and Art here at Like the Spice? Here's a sneak peek at FEED, Eric LoPresti's artist dinner. This month, wine and tapas restaurant Nita Nita will be treating us to a spanish feast, featuring Apricot glazed chicken, Mojo Potatoes and Garlic Shrimp with a scrumptious selection of fine cheeses and serrano ham.

James Duffy of the L magazine says "Mercifully low-key, Nita Nita aims for quality and familiarity, featuring everything a good bar should: a sensibly pared down selection of very good beers on tap (including Abita Turbo Dog Ale, Brooklyn Pennant Ale, Blue Point Toasted Lager, Stella Artois, Blue Moon, and the aforementioned Spaten); a modest, vegetarian-friendly tapas menu from a kitchen that clearly knows what it’s doing; a cocktail list of specialized favorites, each one lovingly made with fresh ingredients (the margaritas are wonderful); and, of course, an impressive, Spanish-heavy wine list, from which a select bottle is matched with a different cheese plate each week. All of which can be enjoyed in the spacious back garden, a tranquil space that feels more like the mellower parts of Portland than New York City."

We're psyched to be working with this fabulous restaurant. If you haven't had a chance to visit yet, be sure to stop by for a drink in their outdoor garden before the weather gets too cold! Of course, it's always hot (metaphorically, not physically cause that would be uncomfortable) at Like the Spice. RSVP's are required, and space is limited, so head here to be a part of this monumental collaboration between art and cuisine on Friday, September 18th. Dinner's served at 8pm!
