Music frequently moves me, both emotionally and geographically. Food and music compel me in similar ways. Food feeds your belly; Music feeds your soul. I have known for many years that good food leads to good music...at least when musicians are around.
Driftwood Soldier and I started collaborating together a couple of months ago. After becoming enchanted by their rhythms and lyrics, I started plotting Dinner & A Show. Then we got to talking about heading South and decided to team up for the ride. Atlanta quickly became an obvious destination. Since my first my first sunset in Atlanta, my time there has always been filled with unforgettable moments of food, music and community. When we talked to our friends in the city about coming down they generously decided to put together a house show and gave me free reign of their kitchen. Atlanta is a fiercely talented music city with deep roots in traditional American music. You won't want to miss it.
Beat the chill Saturday, January 30th at the Bridge Cafe in Frenchtown, New Jersey at 6PM for Phở under the full moon.
Dietary restrictions welcomed, take out available.
The Platform Restaurant made its debut at The Bridge Cafe in Frenchtown, New Jersey this spring and quickly became the talk of the Delaware River Valley. While I was traveling around the States this summer, I would call home and ask friends and family how the summer was treating them- every person would gush about the food at the Platform. It became the place to be, featuring a rotating menu of whatever region Chef Graham Miller wanted to explore. Graham a recent graduate of The Culinary Institute of America worked out in California and hit the ground running when he returned home. I had the pleasure of making it to the last Platform pop-up of the summer where I was overwhelmed and delighted by all of the familiar faces. I couldn't remember a place where people had gathered like this before.
Graham and I have been friends since elementary school and he is probably one of the most gregarious dudes I know. When I was living in Philadelphia and obsessed with Vietnamese food, I would try to lure Graham to come down to the city to explore the asian markets. After a night of barhopping, I insisted we make the pilgrimage to Washington Avenue for a bowl of the good stuff knowing he'd be as smitten with it as I was.
When I came home this winter I was keen to work with Graham at his parents place, The Bridge Cafe, just three miles south of my parent's inn in Upper Black Eddy. Our families have been hustling in the river valley since the 80s and have been very encouraging of us young bucks trying to make our way into the game. We decided we would put on a huge stock pot of Phở for our friends, family and community to celebrate the first full moon of the year.
