In late April, we concluded our series of three dinners across the country with Austerity Wine - celebrating #FeedFeed & #SimplyElevated - culminating with a gathering of our New York City #FeedFeed community at one of our favorite restaurants, Almond. What we have loved about each of the dinners is that we’ve not only gotten to experience the amazing food & wine pairings by talented chefs, but we’ve been able to build deeper, more meaningful connection with those in our community. Something that can only be done by spending time together, in real life.

When planning to host a dinner in NYC, we knew just who to turn to. Chef Jason Weiner of Almond has been a pioneering force of the locavore movement and has become a staple of the New York City food scene - not to mention, a great supporter, himself, of thefeedfeed community (he also happens to be an editor for us!) . We knew that with Jason heading up the menu, Austerity Wines would shine with perfectly paired selections.
