Hey check it out, I've used La Newyorkina on a couple tours in the past and they've been affected by Sandy. Help them get back on their feet while consuming some delicioso comida! City Grit--a great dinner club in Nolita is hosting this fine dinner:
CITY GRIT Presents: ODE TO OAXACA
Mexico City-native Fany Gerson is chef and founder of La Newyorkina, a company that sells frozen treats and sweets inspired by the flavors of Mexico – like paletas, aguas frescas, and other delicious confections. After Hurricane Sandy, her kitchen in Red Hook was devastated; all the machinery, inventory, kitchen supplies, and equipment were destroyed.
To raise money for rebuilding her kitchen and get La Newyorkina back on its feet, Fany is cooking an Ode to Oaxaca dinner at CITY GRIT! The multi-course dinner will pay homage to the flavors and people of Oaxaca, and all of the night’s profits will go towards rebuilding Fany’s unique and beloved business!
When: Saturday, March 23rd at 7:00pm Where: 38 Prince (between Mott and Mulberry) Price: $85, wine and beer available for purchase
