High Line Food: a Social Soup Experiment
October 22, 1:00 - 2:30pm (two 45-minute settings)
14th Street Passage (Park entrance at SE corner of 14th St & 10th Ave)
Join us for the first communal meal on the High Line. The meal is a culinary adventure; a restaurant without walls placed on the High Line; a long table for all to eat from.
The High Line invites you to sit elbow to elbow at one long table and eat a simple, substantial lunch: a large bowl of soup, a hunk of bread and butter.
Frugal, vital and nourishing: what happens when New Yorkers gather for a one-pot meal at a communal table? Purchase tickets and see. Read about it on Eater.
High Line Soup is economical: bread and soup is just $5. Wine and beer available for purchase at the event. Space is limited. Bring your appetites. Bring your friends. Meet your neighbors.
Mona Talbott is the High Line’s guest chef. Talbott has just returned from Rome, where she was the executive chef and founding director of the Rome Sustainable Food Project at the American Academy in Rome. Talbott trained under Alice Waters, and recently wrote her second cookbook, Zuppe, Soups from the kitchen of the American Academy in Rome.
Talbott, along with former interns from Rome, will be preparing the soup with ingredients from New York State farms and serve it with spicy olive oil, alla Romana. Her team will work in the nearby Green Table kitchen.
