Enjoying dinner cooked by a Michelin-starred chef inside a photographer’s Park Avenue loft is not how I typically spend my Friday nights. But at a recent event I attended with PlaceInvaders — a travelling pop-up dining experience that takes place in private homes while its owners are away — that became a reality.
Chef Danny Brown had been looking for a place to serve his meals since his Michelin-starred Wine Bar & Kitchen shuttered late last year due to disagreements with the landlord. So when PlaceInvaders asked Brown to collaborate on their weekend-long New York City run, he couldn’t say no.
The event took place in a gorgeous Flatiron loft, and we got the invite. Ahead, see what our experience with PlaceInvaders was like.
