Eat Your Greens

Last week, I stopped by the Metropolitan Pavilion for the opening of their new green event venue, The Metropolitan Suite. The space was constructed with sustainable design elements and energy-efficient LED lighting, and will serve as the setting for future eco-friendly events, including The Green Shows during Fashion Week. To celebrate the renovations, they had two different chefs, Sterling Affair and Thomas Preti Events to Savor, offering farm-to-table tasting menus, and I got to indulge in plenty of fresh and organic treats. I've always wondered what it would be like to go to a tasting on Top Chef (how do you get invited?!), and this was probably as close as I will get to that experience. My companions (Hungry Hector and Jumbo-mouth Jimmy) and I somehow managed to taste all twelve of the small dishes and canapes, before making our way through the organic all-chocolate dessert bar--a dream come true for a sweet tooth like myself. I am definitely on-board with the locavore trend, although diet-wise, I doubt such indulgences will make you any slimmer...
