Jack is Closed (but you can vote for our pie on Sunday)

I have good news and bad news.

The bad news is that my occasional restaurant, Jack, is shutting down. Due to increasing incompatibility with the venue, we can no longer continue to hold our monthly restaurant nights. It lasted almost two years, and has been an amazing experience. Next, we try to write a book proposal, I suppose. (Though if Palo Santo wanted to take us on as dessert consultants, we wouldn’t complain! We should be so lucky.)

We’re still in mourning over the loss of the restaurant, in a sense. It was a huge part of our lives. But I don’t doubt that the next wacky project is always just around the corner. Compiling long to-do lists of project ideas is my forte.

The good news is that in the meantime, we’re taking our suddenly free weekend as an opportunity to finally join the local cook-off scene. (For those of you elsewhere in the world, here’s the thing: NYC has a burgeoning cook-off scene that has really gotten huge over the past couple of years. Crazy, huh?)

This Sunday we’re going to compete at the 1st Annual Brooklyn Pie Bake-Off Benefit. Come on out, eat delicious pie, and vote for us!

    Sorry we missed Jack. Bummer we’re only 500 miles away. I’m making pumpkin chiffon pie Thursday, using the basic recipe you’ll find everywhere, but dissolving the gelatin in dark rum. Ain’t kilt nobody yet!

    That’s too bad about the Lyceum. I hope that you guys find a new venue soon… And do one of those dinners sometime during the week so us industry folk can make it too. lol.
