Iron Chef Dinner at American Cut
Nov 26 2013
Supper Club members enjoyed an elegant evening at American Cut, Marc Forgione's fabulous new steakhouse in Tribeca. As guests arrived, they were ushered through an elegant bar area adorned with brass chandeliers and copper ceilings to a private dining room. Prior to dinner, guests mingled and enjoyed Chivas Regal 18 and soda while taking in the impressive oval wooden table set with yellow peonies and mirrored candles perfectly accenting the darkly painted brick walls. The sleek scene set the mood for a swanky evening.
As guests were seated, our host set the stage with a toast, introduced Chivas ambassador Peter Karass, and a port wine finished barrel of Chivas 12, exclusively to be enjoyed by Supper Club members, was opened. As the first course was served, including succulent seafood tastings, guests were offered old fashions mixed tableside and served in maple plank smoked glasses. The main course followed, served family style. Many guests had a hard time picking a favorite between the 42oz 28-day aged tomahawk rib eye chop, the 40oz 28-day aged porterhouse, and the plank smoked salmon served with broccolini, creamy potato puree, and sun choked spinach with nutty fontina and smoked salt. Fortunately, any and every decision was a wise one as drams of Chivas18 and wine were offered to compliment the decadent second course. A sinful dessert selection by pastry chef Tara Glick accompanied drams of Chivas 25 to finish the night as ambassador Peter offered a final toast to an excellent evening.

Entrees were served family style to ensure all guests received a taste of each dish, such as the grilled chicken with a homemade mole poblano sauce, the wood grilled shrimp on garlic roasted spinach and sweet plantains, and the savory braised beef. Each dish was not only paired superbly with the Cazadores cocktails but also the fine wine selection provided by Blackbird Vineyards, Maisonry Marsanne, and Recuerdo Wines.

New York Supper Club members were transported to the sunny seashore at Tiny Fork, a trendy seafood shack in the LES. An impressive marble-topped bar sporting a sprouting coconut in the center and a sparkling display of raw crustaceans on ice provided a warm seaside ambiance. As ladies and gentlemen arrived and shed their coats and scarves in the richly accented dining room, the specially crafted cocktails entitled Misty Mermaid and Black Velvet featuring Kraken Rum, Boodles Gin and Hangar One Vodka certainly helped chase away the pesky New York fall chill.
As guests began to find their seats for dinner, each place set with it’s own adorable mini Tabasco bottle, they prepared to enjoy a family style three course seafood feast! The first offering was raw oysters, from the east and west coast as well as a light kale salad. Second, oyster sliders on fresh pretzel-brioche buns, light fish tacos, buttery lobster sliders and decadent mac and cheese bars graced the table scape amid glowing candles and excellent company. Aderezo Tempranillo and Brisas do Mar Godello provided the perfect wine pairing for a truly transcendent meal. A selection of mini cookies and pastries from Le Petit Bakery provided the perfect bite, or two, of sweetness as dinner drew to a close.
As the tide began to ebb, new and old friends alike shared a nightcap entitled “Fonzie Jumps the Shark” of expertly mixed Maestro Dobel Tequila, honey-ancho syrup and lime juice while dreading heading back into the chill and leaving another warm and enchanting Supper Club evening.
