The Host's Table: Curated Drinks, Foods, Decor, Conversations...
Address provided after booking
The voyage starts with tropical sounds, a sultry cocktail, followed by a menu seasoned by the “Spice Trail” cuisines of The Caribbean; where African, Spanish, Taíno, and Middle Eastern (Jewish & Arabic) flavors come together to make up traditional, Dominican, dishes. It ends with a creamy rum-dessert and stories, through "The Host's Questionnaire."
It's a curated evening of specialty drinks, foods, decor, music and conversations.

*The Host’s Questionnaire*
A century before today’s popular personality quizzes, Victorian “confession albums” served essentially the same role, presenting a series of simple questions designed to reveal the respondent’s sensibility and aspirations. It’s a conversation starter.
