When we’ve just started FeedMe, I knew that no matter where this venture takes me, one think is certain - I am going to eat like a king… which turned out to be true. But little did I know, that it will open a door to a secret world which I had no idea exist… the world of secret dinning.
Last week my wife surprised me and took me to Bohemian - a fusion Japanese restaurant in Noho, NY. As it turns out, one can’t go there or reserve a sit, even if he ask very politely, unless he knows someone who visited there before. In our case, my wife emailed the restaurant and mentioned our affiliation with FeedMe and my upcoming birthday. Kimi, the hospitality girl liked the idea, but only after she got proofs that I actually own the service, sent us an invitation… Now this is not an ordinary confirmation. We received a list of instruction, including the real address of the restaurant, a phone which we have to call when we are outside of the building, and specific instructions regarding timing…
Sure enough we got to the place right on time. The restaurant is located inside the entrence of an ordinary building. If you look at the front of the building, you will find nothing that suggest the existence of this place. The restaurant itself is very small, although specious and yet cosy.
You probably can tell by now that all this secrecy made us very excited about this dinner. And we weren’t disappointed. The food was fantastic (as I think the following imaged will tell), but it is the atmosphere and the hospitality that made it such a great evening. Our waiter knew all about us, and FeedMe (did I mention the due-diligence prior to approving our reservation…?), and of course he remembered that it is my birthday (thank you!). And after dinner, we even had a private tour in the kitchen.
I’m not a food expert, so you beter take a glance of the pictures to get the culinary aspect of this story, rather than me trying to describe tastes and flavors… Oh, and I’m sorry, but my phone didn’t make it to the main course…
And now, let the search for more places like that begin! do you know other secret location? share it with us in the comments!
