OPEN HOUSE - Selling New York

I love my job! It takes me around the city which is why I find the restaurants that I post mostly by passing by it, viewing the menu and actually trying it.

This evening, I attended an invitation to be in the live taping of Selling New York; a weekly series on cable TV about how "homes" or apartments are marketed in New York City.

This one was located in the Financial District. It is a high end apartment.  To market it, they set up a catered party for us to view it at the Open House.  Earlier today, I had the privilege to also view 2 other properties with catered lunches.  One of them was really delicious.

At tonight's "Selling New York" Open House, the food was delicious.  But here's a quick video of the show "Selling New York" as it was being taped:

They had the camera rolling as we were entertained with delightful treats from:

But I elected to drink some seltzer water instead of wine.

Salmon sashimi was served on chopped cucumbers with delicate sauce over it and black caviar on top from

    Luke's Lobster was there too; except they were saving the lobsters for later.  They were passing out minute shrimp on small rolls.
    And they had pizza from Harry's.
    At the kitchen, I opted for some seltzer water instead of wine.
    FOR LUNCH:  I went to a very nice apartment between Fifth Avenue and Madison where they also had a catered lunch - food was excellent as well catered by:

    Go Catering:
    522 W 29th St # 1

    (212) 924-4502
    They can do small or large catering service.  The open house had mini roast beef slices on toast with sliced cornichons,
    cucumber finger sandwiches, Fall fruit salad, delicious homemade fruit scones served with homemade fruit jam and cream,
    and many more.  It was delicious and I highly recommend this place if you'd like to entertain and not do it yourself.
