After Superstorm Sandy hit NYC and devastated many homes and businesses, Left Bank kept its doors open, cooked without electricity, and served diners by candlelight. It became a hub for neighbors in the West Village when they had nowhere else to go. One year later, Left Bank is partnering with City Harvest to raise money for further Sandy relief. For four nights, they are preparing a special menu where every dish will be made without the help of electrical tools and customers will dine by candlelight. Sounds pretty amazing to me! I am a huge fan of Left Bank and Chef & Owner Laurence Edelman, and I am proud to support such a worthy cause. My foodie bestie, SaraDISH, and her hubby, Estevino, rounded up a group of fellow food lovers for dinner on the first night of “Lights Out for Sandy”. We all enjoyed delicious dishes such as the roasted beet salad, hand cut pappardelle with beef & duck sugo, and roasted spaghetti squash. If you don’t have dinner plans yet, or if you do, change them and come dine at Left Bank from Oct 31 – Nov 2. You’ll be eating amazing food and supporting a great cause!
