Making The Grade At Cafe 92YTribeca

image

Speaking of acing tests, Cafe 92YTribeca received an A grade as well from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. If you haven’t tried the menu yet, please stop by. We recommend the House Special Pizza, thin crust, with fontina cheese, caramelized onions, fresh rosemary and truffle oil. People rave about the homemade lemonades too. Check out the whole food and beverage menu.

Beer + Latkes Hanukkah Celebration

imageThe holidays are right around the corner, (yah!) and 92YTribeca is back with some old favorites and new traditions. For example, everybody’s favorite (and the city’s only) Beer + Latkes Hanukkah Celebration returns on December 2 for a memorable night.

First, we’ll taste the innovative latke creations of 92YTribeca head chef and culinary daredevil Russell Moss, alongside carefully chosen beer selections handpicked by cicerone (beer expert) Dan Moss. Then, a fierce dreidel competition and Hanukkah trivia contest!

And finally, you’ll enjoy chocolate gelt and sufganiyot (traditional jelly donuts). OH YAH. See you there.

Pineapple Basil Lemonade: “Perfect Summer Beverage”

image

Yesterday afternoon, self-described tea drinker @CalebBrown expanded his beverage consumption to our Pineapple-Basil Lemonade, and as seen above, was very happy with his decision. But you don’t have to take his word for it, stop by yourself and have one.

Executive Chef Russell Moss and Food and Beverage Director Alexander (Sasha) Chack keep Cafe 92YTribeca stocked with delicious beverages and dishes, in a Kosher dairy facility under the supervision of Rabbi Israel Mayer Steinberg. You can view the menu here in a PDF.

Eat Your Vegetables And Cut Them Properly Too!

image

Gearing up for the Taste of Tribeca, Tribeca Citizen is gathering culinary tips from participating chefs.

On Wednesday, Cafe 92YTribeca‘s chef Russell Moss spent a few moments with them to talk about what they do at the Cafe and the proper way to use a knife, a skill he teaches during his Knife Skills class at 92YTribeca:

We do a lot of vegetarian cooking, and there are tons of vegetables in every style of cooking. Take something like beef stew, which has carrots, onions, celery, sometimes leeks. People who come to our classes say they don’t have time to cut all the vegetables, so they just do some of them. That won’t work—not for beef stew, not for braising, not for soups.

If you’re looking for a career in the kitchen, say at Dan Barber’s Blue Hill at Stone Barn for instance, or just want to become adept with your knives at home, Knife Skills classes at 92YTribeca are coming up on April 27 and May 4. Sign up here.

Check out all upcoming classes at 92YTribeca.

What a Difference a Year Makes: 92YTribeca’s 1-Year Anniversary

image

A year has passed since we opened the doors at 92YTribeca. Sufjan Stevens, Osso, and DM Stith helped us get pass that milestone on Oct 26. In the year prior, a lot of (sometimes surprising and quirky) things have happened since.

We’ve done an extensive numbers crunch for you. Counting number of shows, most frequents guests, and more—including esoteric stats, such as the number of Foursquare Check-ins (203 as of 11/3/09) most requested beer (PBR) and the number of hits on our New York Times parody video on YouTube (110,337 as of 11/3/09).

Please enjoy the full list is after the jump!

What You Missed: Osso, DM Stith & Sufjan Stevens’ The BQE

This past Saturday, 92YTribeca hosted the New York City premier of The BQE film on DVD, with Sufjan Stevens playing host.

image

NYUNews.com was there, and reports:

“Hey, I’m your host: DJ Sufjan. Thanks for coming,” he says, trying to stir the audience.

It will be a night of art — but exactly how, or what kind of art, no one is certain.

Stevens speaks for a brief moment and introduces the first act, singer/songwriter DM Smith. imageUnlike most folk singers, Smith is backed by six other musicians: a percussionist, a bassist, a cellist, two violinists and a viola player. The classical backing only serves to assist his enchanting howl, which channels Eastern rhythms. His short set is defined by simple, delicate arrangements, like an appetizer before the main course.

A few moments pass, and Stevens climbs the stage once more. This time, he explains that his second album, “Enjoy Your Rabbit,” was an electronic experiment that no one seemed to understand. As a result, he had the songs rewritten for the string quartet Osso, a group of classically trained women who perform interpretations of Stevens’ songs. Stevens’ experimental computer distortion transforms into high notes. The audience, formerly busy in conversation, is respectably silent. Dreamy sequences approach and linger as each song reaches a close. It is, most definitely, a non-traditional take on a classical medium.

The New York Press and Brooklyn Vegan were there as well.

After the jump, enjoy a few more photos from the multimedia extravaganza, or view the complete photo album at 92YTribeca’s Facebook.

Celebrating a Long Weekend in New York City

image

400 years ago, a fellow by the name of Henry Hudson sailed into the waters of Manhattan, introducing a European state of mind to an island full of greenery and Native Americans. 167 years later, America declared their independence. On this long weekend coming up to celebrate the Fourth of July, allow your beleaguered self some rest, and enjoy yourself.

You can get a jump on the festivities at 92YTribeca with some swing music and beer. On Friday, Jul 3 you can catch JC Hopkins Biggish Band featuring Queen Esther and Todd Londagin. The New Yorker wrote: “Hopkins writes swinging material tailor made for a vacuum-tube radio and it’s delivered with a timeless flair by the lead singer, Queen Esther.” And you know that New Yorkers love their swing music and the Jazz Age. For those who need pointers, swing lessons will be provided before the show.

We hear that the sun we’ll be around this weekend as well, if you can believe it. There is a long list of beers from Lagunitas Brewing Company that we have available that will taste extra good. Particularly our big sharing bottle of Coney Island Sword Swallower, perfect for this weekend. Of course, if Pabst Blue Ribbons is your thing, we’ve got you covered there as well.

On the Fourth of July, there are the fireworks of course. This year, they will be honoring the 400th Anniversary of Henry Hudson’s voyage here. For the first time since 2000, the display will be exploding over the Hudson River.

We Like The Fully-Stocked Bar Part

image

City Scoops magazine has a nice profile on 92YTribeca and it’s birth from our Makor center. And we’re not sure we could have said it any better than Larry Getlen did in his piece:

If you live in New York, selecting your Saturday night entertainment means sorting through a brain-blasting selection of virtually every possible sort of intellectual, cultural, or hedonistic diversion. Picture if you will, on a recent Saturday night, the following options. Chatting with friends in a quiet cafe, eating wasabi tuna deviled eggs and sipping coffee or wine, or in that same cafe but with singer/songwriter serenades as you partake in your culinary delights. In a larger theater, complete with fully-stocked bar, enjoying an acoustic set from the indie rock favorite who once released a song called “Bill Gates Must Die,” John Vanderslice. Laughing along to a stand-up set by State/Stella favorite Michael Showalter. Taking in an exhibit of cartoon art. Or — in case this menu wasn’t well-rounded enough for you — marveling at a screening of an independent film called “Viva,” a parody of seventies sexploitation films featuring a pair of lead actresses for whom shirts appear to be a luxury, and dialogue so intentionally overwrought you can almost hear the actors giggling in their own minds.

At 92YTribeca, a brand new cultural/community center at 200 Hudson St., these activities were all on offer at their October 18 opening celebration, a grand display of the new facility’s versatility and diversity.

Check it out yourself. In the next few days, you can choose from a Backstage Tour of The Simpsons with Mike Reiss, Lyricist Lounge Presents...The Foundation Album Release Showcase, Mashable NextUp NYC: Lessons From the Local Internet Startup Community or our much anticipated event, Print vs. Blog: The Many Faces of Cultural Journalism. If you really want to get an idea of upcoming events, you should look at 92YTribeca’s website yourself and browse the comprehensive programming.
