A little taste of what we've been up to…
More great news! We've been fortunate to begin filming earlier than expected. So while you've been helping spread the word about Deconstructing Dinner, we've been on the road filming the farms of rural New York State and the restaurants of NYC.
Here's a little taste of our work at Gramercy Tavern to whet your appetite. A huge thank you to Michael Anthony, a chef whose warm heart and talents amazed us all, and to his wonderful staff.
Filming the dining scene in Gramercy Tavern's rustic, yet elegant private dining room.
Michael Anthony's beef carpaccio with kohlrabi, olives, pine nuts, anchovy aioli and basil. Yep, it's as tasty as it is beautiful.

Prepping for the interview. Michael Anthony and his game face.
Michael's game face yielding to an expression we saw much more of during the interview. He's great on camera!
One last shoot in the main restaurant. An excuse to eat more of Gramercy Tavern's delicious cuisine? Maybe.
A daintier and no less delicious offering from the kitchen.
