I always mean to post some love for chef, Post Punk Kitchen TV personality and author Isa Chandra Moskowitz (another "Brooklyn Vegan")...
What prompted this now then?
Well - as previously reported, NY Magazine is throwing six *hip* events - a series called "New York by New York". The first one was Of Montreal karaoke. The next one: VEGAN DINNER WITH MAN MAN. Man Man is playing (at a secret location in Manhattan), and Isa is cooking an 8-part meal. Wow Wow.
Tickets go on sale today. I think they're $30, but they include the food and drinks. There will only be 250 tickets too (about the capacity of Mercury Lounge?).
Their set consisted mostly of material from their latest album "Six Demon Bag" and it was damn good (if you don't own this album I suggest getting it....it's definitely different but something to be enjoyed). I would say the fact that they had some people out of their seats getting down to the music was a good sign considering it seemed that 97% of that audience was there for Modest Mouse.Check out Isa's Vegan Vengeance cookbook, her cupcake cookbook, videos of her TV show, and her gothamist interview.
