When Date Night Gets Epic: Inside an Underground Supper Clubby HowAboutWe on March 15, 2013
Underground dining pioneer A Razor, A Shiny Knife – billed as an “educational, social and theatrical culinary experience” – is leading the secret supper club renaissance with gastronomic stunts. (Like that time they successfully served a six course meal to diners on the L train.) But the concept remains humble: people socialize, learn, and bond while preparing a meal to enjoy together.
