Kitchit’s ‘Bespoke’ Dining Launches in New York Today


Kitchit, a service that connects food lovers to local chefs, launches in New York today. Like in San Francisco and L.A., Kitchit’s members can work directly with restaurant chefs to create intimate events at their homes. Check out an example of a Kitchit menu (pictured above) after the jump; this one’s by ABC Kitchen’s Dan Kluger:

1st course
housemade ricotta, rhubarb compote, and grilled bread
roasted beets with housemade yogurt
roast carrot and avocado salad, crunchy seeds, sour cream, and citrus
shaved raw fluke, crushed olives, lemons, and chiles

2nd course
halibut, asparagus, tapenade, and sorrel
organic crispy chicken, escarole, and lemon
roasted fiddlehead ferns

seasonal glazed doughnuts
chocolate cake with malted chocolate ganache and toasted marshmallow frosting

Other New York chefs working with Kitchit: Floyd Cardoz of North End Grill, Anita Lo of Annisa, and Harold Dieterle of Kin Shop, to name a few. Pricing can start as low as $40 a person but “an elaborate tasting menu for two” might cost a whopping $7,000.
