If you've ever worked in hospo, you've been in this situation. And even if you haven't waited, tended bar or cooked up a storm in a professional kitchen, you can probably still relate. Finding a decent place to relax, eat great food and drink fabulous cocktails after the clock strikes midnight isn't as easy as it really should be these days. And so, with that in mind, the Late Night Harlem Supper Club became a reality.
Send your thanks Nieuw Amsterdam's way — and then send yourself their way for the first event at 1.30am on October 15. And if you can't make that date, don't worry. Another one will be announced soon.
Each Supper Club will see a guest chef in control of the kitchen, with Oter's Florent 'Flo' Gerardin the first candidate. Given that he has worked at venues such as Vue de Monde, Silo and Pei Modern, his three-course menu is sure to impress. Dishes will be matched with Campari cocktails created by Nieuw Amsterdam's bar manager Sean McGuire, and the whole combo will only set you back $60 as an opening special. Night owls, get booking.
