On Wednesday, April 30 and Thursday, May 1, chef Sara Kramer, formerly of Glasserie, and her former sous chef Sarah Hymanson teamed up to create a four-course meal at City Grit in Nolita. Part of the venue’s “Next Big Thing” series, the dinner featured Kramer’s signature Middle Eastern touches paired with attendees’ choice of wines in an intimate setting.
While Kramer and Hymanson gave no indication of their plans for the future, their food spoke volumes about the pair’s vision and teamwork. After an amuse-bouche of lamb tartare on a freekeh cracker, diners enjoyed romaine salad with rhubarb and cacao nibs; trumpet mushrooms with spring vegetables and clams; chicken two ways with ramps and sunflower seeds on a sunchoke puree; and sweetpea and sesame panna cotta.
