At the end of this month, Paris chef Iñaki Aizpitarte is coming to New York to cook a series of dinners at restaurateur Andrew Tarlow's Reynard, in the Wythe Hotel. The intimate events, which will feature dishes from Aizpitarte and Reynard chef Sean Rembold, will be held on April 29, April 30, and May 1. The meal is six courses, and tickets are $225. They can be purchased online.
Aizpitarte is the chef of Le Chateaubriand (currently ranked #15 in the world) and Le Dauphin, a natural wine and tapas bar designed by the architect Rem Koolhaas. Aizpitarte's work over the last decade has made him one of the most visible figures in the bistronomy movement, which, described loosely, is made up of talented young chefs cooking ambitious, risky food in decidedly casual, cool dining rooms; Michelin stars are not their goal. In recent years, Aizpitarte has become one of the world's most well-known chefs, taking part in Cook It Raw and presenting around the world at gastronomic conferences like MAD, the symposium organized by Danish chef René Redzepi.
