‘wichcraft 10th Birthday Celebration

Cheers to ten great years! ‘wichcraft just turned 10 and celebrated in a big way with an outdoor bash at Bryant Park Grill. Chef Tom Colicchio, chef and owner of the Craft family of restaurants, was there to thank the ‘wichcraft team and toast the crowd. (I love you, Tom!) There was no shortage of tasty ‘wichcraft sandwiches, including my two faves, the smoked pork belly with cabbage slaw on a ciabatta roll and a new sammie created just for the occasion: mortadella,¬†robiola, pickled red onion, salsa verde, arugula, and roasted garlic puree on ciabatta. (For those of you who are not familiar with mortadella, it’s Italian bologna.)¬†AMAZING! In honor of this special day, Bombay Sapphire mixed up a couple of refreshing cocktails: the¬†Citrus-spiced Collins and ‘Tin Shandy, which came in a cool tin cup that we got to keep! For dessert, a huge cake in the shape of the number ten was sliced up for the crowd. Such a fun event! Thank you so much, Ellen, for inviting me to be a part of the celebration. Happy 10th Birthday, ‘wichcraft — here’s to ten more!
