Hence, you prefer to host any gatherings in front of a live studio audience.
Well, if you build it...
Introducing The Kitchen NYC, a newly launched, 7,500-square-foot TV studio/personal kitchen stadium that’s ready to host (or remote broadcast) your next cocktail party, whole-hog smoke or 24-hour wine tasting festival, open now.
Think of this in a do-anything/world-is-your-oyster frame of mind. At your disposal: two rentable kitchens, one tasting suite, a walk-in freezer, a TV control room and diplomatic immunity to throw pretty much any party that doesn’t violate fire code or FCC regulations.
First things first: inform your underground Iron Chef Fight Club that you’ll be moving to a new venue this weekend. Next, send over a runner with all your requirements. Mouth guards. Maine lobsters. James Beard–awarded guest referees. Then, decide if this is the type of fete you want to conduct in a tasting room with a 500-bottle wall of wine. Or live, in front of cameras and a 55-seat audience.
You see, besides being available for your upcoming Oscar party, one of the kitchens also doubles as a working studio set. Which means you could put the entire evening on the air if you were so inclined.
Or just use it for the green room.
