Musketeers Serving Up Supper

The Musket Club formed by 3 childhood friends from Queens, NY is a monthly supper club where it’s not only about food but about the arts. Upon arrival I was warmly greeted by Rachel Margolin who is in charge of Guest Services, I took my glass of lemon infused water out to the back to meet some of the other guests. As Rachel put it, “Having dinner with 20 friends who know each other would be ideal, but 20 different people coming together on an intimate level like this is even greater to watch!” Experiencing it for myself and seeing how true that statement is, I give them a lot of credit.

Most dinner clubs I’ve attended showcase the menu beforehand or leave it at your table setting, but this is like no dinner I’ve attended. Once the guests sat around the beautifully landscaped table by the very entertaining owners of Mimulo whom I had the pleasure of sitting next to for the evening, we were introduced to the theme of the evening. With summer’s finale approaching they chose to keep it alive by re-reading William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Each of the seven courses and wine or mead (straight from Maine!) pairings to go along was explained with references of the play. Chef Adina Halpern expressed her voice through creating exquisite looking and tasting dishes, one better than the next. Summery produce from the Framer’s Market and meats from Grow and Behold you really tasted quality and freshness. Dinner started off with a Smoked Grapevine Tomato heart, honeycomb, saffron and lemongrass. With each bowl served you noticed the silence coming from the person next to you then the immediate buzz of how wonderful the juices combined together.  The next course was Last of the summer vegetables, date honey and Bottarga paired with a Honeymaker Lavender Mead. The third course was made to resemble the silvery moonlight and so it did with Spanish Mackerel, cucumber and lemon verbena paired with Jasmine Infusion. Number four was Pottage of Heirloom barley, salt- cured olives, figs and honey truffle. This dish also brought a lot of buzzing to the table. The textures and seasoning were so exciting. The following course was Red Mullet and a side salad of herbs, fennel and green tomato topped with the most delicious verjus I’ve ever tasted. For the main course and by far my most favorite, Adina prepared grass-fed lamb, pine and malt. What looks like a rock on the presentation is actually a potato covered in edible clay, taking the theme to a higher level! This course was served with a glass of Dalton Reserve Shiraz 2012. The last and final course was a beautiful bowl of shaved ice, strawberries and edible summer flowers paired with Honeymaker Blueberry Mead. Upon departure the Three Musketeers handed out a recipe with a homemade Chartreuse made by the third Musket herself, Danielle Brody, along with the menu of the evening and recipe for a chartreuse lemonade tied together.

I’m looking forward to see what these talented young women have up their sleeves for next month. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram for the latest and greatest. For private parties and more information they can be reached at

Seasons Come and Go

It has been reported to us that the original deal has fallen through as the debts are in the $30 Million range. As other investors and industry insiders have been contacted to make a bid to hopefully purchase the conglomerate, we are now told it will be heading into bankruptcy, we truly hope a buyer is found to save these fantastic establishments that are well served by our communities.   

Rumors have been on the streets for a long time that Seasons Supermarkets have been in financial trouble. Despite any false rumors that they would remain in business and that all was fine, the facts were out and clear. For weeks meats were not filling the refrigerated section and deliveries were slowing down.

A meeting took place in Loch Sheldrake recently with big names like Yossi Rubashkin and Ari Chitrick along with others to discuss the potential of taking it over before the coming Rosh Hashana. As we’ve been told Yossi who is bringing many competent managerial staff to the front will be able to bring these stores up to their potential. Yossi Rubashkin has a nitch for buying failing businesses and turning them around. Lawrence Garber, the original owner of Super Sol who sold to Seasons will be taking back the Scarsdale store along with money owed to him. Rubashkin and Chitrick are looking to sell some of the other Seasons like the ones located in Lakewood, Baltimore and the one in Cleveland that never made it to their debut opening will not be opening. 

We will update you along the way with the ins and outs of all the talk within the industry. We are looking forward to seeing how this all will play out. Stay tuned as there are some very interesting news that will take place within the Seasons chain, we are even told as of today this entire deal may have fallen through and everyone is back to square one. We wish all the current and future operators and future buy outs much Hatzlacha and good Mazal with the coming new year!

We have been contacted by Heller, Horowitz & Feit, P.C. who are counsel to Kissena Glatt Farms, LLC and its owner, Mr. Aron Hirtz.
