“It’s hard to believe how good this food is, or how cool we are!”Photo courtesy Whisk & LadleFor a secret supper club that serves multicourse dinners in an undisclosed (loft) location in Williamsburg, the Whisk & Ladle has a pretty high profile. (You can be forgiven, however, for confusing them with the like-minded but officially unaffiliated Ghetto Gourmet group, as they both have skull-and-crossbones-inspired logos.)
They’ve got a Website with photos, their history, and a sign-up, and that’s on top of the MySpace page (they’ll feed you and be your friend — who needs a mommy now?). The private dining movement is gaining momentum around the world; some of the best meals in Bejing, we’re told, are served under a bare lightbulb in someone’s tiny dining room. (Just like the food we serve ourselves at home!) Given how many great cooks there are in New York — and how many good eaters — organizations like Whisk & Ladle are a natural fit for the city. But they really should come up with their own logos.
