lucky bee


I recently teamed up with Alexandria Geisler, Editorial Director of The Citiphile, to co-host their second Supper Club. Our restaurant of choice was newcomer & hotspot The Lucky Bee, which serves delicious family-style Southeast Asian cuisineNotable guests included Sandy Laing, Katie Ermilio, Teen Vogue's Andrew Bevan, Phil Oh, La Marque's Valerie Boster, WSJ's Laura Stoloff, and Bow&Arrow's Leslie O'Kelley. Chef Matthew "Matty" Bennett spoke about the new Lower East Side restaurant's Southeast Asian style of cooking while guests dined on papaya salad, smashed cucumbers, steamed pork and sesame dumplings, tuna tartare and several types of curry including green vegetable curry, spiced mussaman lamb curry and king prawn red curry. Drinks, including pitchers of super spicy margaritas with a chili salt rim, flowed freely, as did the laughs and conversation amongst guests. Check out the slideshow & video below for a fun recap of the event!
