The final event of a roving pop-up dinner series, Makin’ It: New York, celebrates creativity and passion by pairing local, up-and-coming chefs and performers.
On Monday, November 17th, we took over a speakeasy on the Lower East Side, treating guests to a thought-provoking feast by Chef Don Peavy, a variety of carefully selected Rhône Valley wines, and a number of unbelievable nouveau-circus performances by Lady Circus.
Our sommelier, Caleb Ganzer from Eleven Madison Park, in collaboration with Chef Don Peavy, has fastidiously combed through the Rhône region to select and pair 10 of the best wines to complement this gastronomic journey…
Chef Don Peavy: Personal chef to the stars, cooks up stories unique to each dining experience, channeling inspiration from all the universe has to offer. His cooking style is one of liberating edibles from the rules of what should be done and encourages diners to open their mouths and take a chance.
Lady Circus: Since 2006, Lady Circus has been gracing the stages of New York City and beyond with intense spectacles of passionate performance. Experience an exclusive preview of the upcoming season at the new House of Yes, opening in the new year.
