Artisan Access Dinner For MasterCard Priceless New York

On Wednesday, July 27, Tasting Table celebrated the launch of our partnership with MasterCard Priceless New York by hosting the first dinner in our Artisan Access series at our new Test Kitchen & Dining Room. This monthly series of dinner parties features artisans who supply New York's best restaurants with their expertly crafted and curated foodstuffs.

This month we celebrated Pain D'Avignon breads, the extraordinary bakers whose baked goods are featured at top spots like Locanda Verde. During cocktail hour, our 30 guests sipped original Alchemy Consulting cocktails and enjoyed Tasting Table executive chef Brendan McHale's creative hors d'oeuvres while listening to the Jingle Punks Hipster Orchestra who cover contemporary music in a classical style. Then guests were treated to a six-course menu; each course creatively incorporated Pain D'Avignon's breads and was matched with complementary wine pairings.

Coming next month: Gramercy Tavern's cheesemonger, Saxelby Cheese. Want a seat at the next table? Visit to purchase tickets.
