We invite you to enter Chef David Bouley’s culinary laboratory – Bouley Test Kitchen – for an immersive culinary experience and multi-course interactive meal with site-specific theatre pioneer Erin Mee.
Be enchanted by music, performance art, dancers and a multi-course menu created by Chef David Bouley. Excite le cinq sens by celebrating food, art and misc en scene – how brass instrumentation brings out the bitter flavor in food and how strawberry desserts taste sweeter when eaten on white plates. See how the taste of your food is affected by the theatrical elements surrounding it…and choreograph the Dance of Chocolate.
