More about your host: "At the young age of ten, I found my way into the kitchen, where I learned how to cook from my West Indian Grandparents and parents. After traveling to the Caribbean and other parts of the world, I decided to start hosting dinners that reflect my heritage and the spirit of family. One thing that I've learned about food, it's a great way to connect with others." Chef Toya has worked with James Beard award-winning Chef Erik Bruner-Yang at Maketto & Broken English and Chef Mina Stone at Mina's, PS1. Under their tutelage, she has refined her natural talents. She then launched Pimento in the summer of 2018, where she continues to host private events, supper clubs, and catering events throughout New York City.

What to expect
Venue was beautiful. Immaculate. Toya delightful and attentive. Food was nothing short of spectacular. Highly recommend this event. Our group will be back and bringing friends.
It was a wonderful meal, prepared with care by Toya and her mother. The presentation was excellent. The room was super clean with extra touches such as fresh flowers on table and extra table decorations.
Words aren’t enough to describe our meal & Toya’s delivery between The Caribbean & The East was PERFECTLY MATCHED. One of the BEST BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS we’ve experienced. I highly recommend The EATWITH Community to sample Toya’s presentation & ambiance
10/10. The second you enter Toya's space you feel a sense of warmth, almost as if you've arrived at your own home. You are greeted with booties for your feet, hand sanitizer, and the most delicious smell of home fragrance and food. Toya's home is phenomenal but her food is OUT OF THIS WORLD. My taste buds were having their own little dance party. Every dish was a new adventure into an unknown world of flavors. The first dish, Garden Petite Porridge gave me an instant flashback to my grandmothers porridge in the Dominican Republic, I mean wow, wow, wow. All in all I cannot wait to go back and dine with Toya, the world needs to know about this incredible experience. Thank you Toya for the most amazing brunch!
