Last night Wayne and I headed to Prune for the Perennial Plate dinner, organized by our friends Daniel Klein & Mirra Fine. Dishes were inspired by their journey across America, where they've been gathering stories about local, honest food and the people behind them and making them into a wonderful video series. I think my favorite dish was the fried porgie, which was a homage to the catfish noodling episode. It had a thick and satisfying cornmeal crust, and the fish was ridiculously tender underneath.
It was such a pleasure to share a meal like this with friends and strangers who are so passionate and interested in the stories behind the food. Daniel and Mirra are in town for the next week, and we're excited to see who they end up connecting with in the New York area.
We really enjoy participating events like this, and we especially appreciated the collaborative aspect between Daniel and Gabrielle Hamilton in coming up with the menu. And it's inspiration for one of many things we'd like to do with Lonestar Taco once we open. We can't wait!
