Launched in August of 2010, GRACIOUS GOURMAND is New York City-based, biweekly dinner event presented by The Discerning Brute & Second Stop Cafe, and is not for the weak of palate. Featuring a rotating cast of chefs specializing in avant-garde, gourmet, sustainable fare, our series aims to challenge ordinary perceptions and preparations of fine food, expose visionary talent, and celebrate conscientious hedonism. The Cost is $50 PRIX FIXE plus drinks, and there are two seatings of 15pp each – 7pm & 9:30pm.
