Dinner with New Friends has been a LOT of fun so far. We’ve had 14 dinners with 14 people all having dinner and making new friends and connections each and every week at different restaurants in the city.

I’ve worked hard to try and have some cheaper events to make them more accessible to everyone, but I haven’t been to many new areas of the city yet (let’s be honest, I’ve been staying in the East Village because it’s convenient for me and I love the area)… But that all changes with this one!

On October 25, we’re headed to a VERY cool place in Staten Island: Enoteca Maria:

Nine years ago, moved by the wish of sharing Italian grandmothers’ culinary culture I opened a restaurant, Enoteca Maria. At Enoteca several Italian grandmothers from different Italian regions cook their own menus on a rotating schedule.

Next natural step, in July 2015, was inviting grandmothers of different countries to cook at the restaurant.

HOW COOL IS THIS!? Check out an awesome video here all about it!

Grandmas from all over the world, cooking their local dishes in a fantastic restaurant in Staten Island (just a short walk from the ferry). We’re going to be meeting at around 7pm, so if you’re free click on the link below!!
