THE UPPERCLUB::A TRADITION IN THE MAKING…

The past weekend Nostylgia’s first family of myself and my beautiful fiance, were invited to take part in the inaugural weekend of the UPPERCLUB, Uptown’s first official supper club hosted by young chef Lester and his fiance Davida. Though new to the idea myself, I hear supper clubs are all the rave in Europe and other parts of the NYC, so I couldnt pass up the opportunity to indulge in a gourmet 7 course meal while meeting new and interesting people.

The entire night oozed with a nostalgic social ambiance much like local dinner parties of the 40s and 50s.  A time when couples would wine and dine together until the wee hours of the night. The highlight for us was honestly the whole experience but the red snapper ceviche in a veracruzana sauce was definitely my favorite dish along with the Hibiscus Granita, made from the supply at our own Inwood Tea Bar and Chess Lounge.

I look forward to more UPPERCLUB evenings and NOSTYLGIC nights.   Check out the UPPERCLUB BLOG HERE and make sure you sign up fast for their next event!

Continue living LIFESTYLGIA to the fullest!
