As a mecca of consumer temptation, it’s no surprise that New York city is leading the charge when it comes to fashionable eating. In this edition of Event Food we look at two of NYC’s preeminent fine diners, Ai Fiori and Daniel, for a little foodie inspiration. Compiled by Lauren Arena

Ai Fiori, NYC

“A meal at Ai Fiori, like this cured sardine panzanella, should transport diners back to where I found my inspiration for the food — to the Côte d’Azur by way of the Ligurian shoreline.”
– Chef Michael White, Ai Fiori, NYC



Daniel, NYC

An award-winning chef of international fame, Daniel Bouloud’s namesake DANIEL, in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper East Side, is among the most coveted places to eat – and from this Tai snapper ceviche dish, with Persian cucumbers, tapioca pearls and dill oil we can see why.
