Let us begin...
(1) TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB – SOMETHING GOOD CAN WORK
(2) PANIC AT THE DISCO – WHEN THE DAY MET THE NIGHT
All was golden in the sky
All was golden when the day met the night”
Eating cheese on toast
Yeah you make me merry make me very very happy
But you obviously, you didn't want to stick around"
NOMA – COPENHAGEN DENMARK
This restaurant was voted “The Best Restaurant in the World” IN THE WORLD!!!!!!
I can just save up my money and go there all by myself like an independent woman. (But doesn’t the first option sound a lot more romantic???)
(1) HOW CHRISTINA TOSI INTRODUCED DESSERTS TO THE ‘MOMOFUKU’ EMPIRE
"At The Feast Talks during the New York Wine & Food Festival, we sat down with Milk Bar pastry whiz Christina Tosi and discussed how she infiltrated the no-dessert territory of the Momofuku restaurants. Watch Tosi describe how she designs sweets for each of the different menus (when she's not masterminding a Brooklyn expansion). She also explains why midtown's Má Pêche doesn't serve dessert."

(3) RENE’ REDZEPI STRUGGLES TO COMPREHEND AMERICAN FOOD
“As a visiting Dane, number one chef in the world René Redzepi would love to try American food. But he's having trouble finding it in New York, he told us at All-Clad's 40th Anniversary party last week. Despite falling for restaurants like Torrisi and Thomas Keller's Per Se, Redzepi sees an amalgam of diverse elements (Italian, French, Asian) as opposed to a unified cuisine.”
(1) D’Espresso – NEW YORK
“The new D’Espresso on Madison Avenue (at 42nd) in New York has received more media attention than is generally awarded to a tiny coffee shop in this world of millions of new coffee shops.
The reason for the attention is the fun design by the Manhattan-based nemaworkshop, a team of designers and architects that has created numerous cool retail and hospitality concepts. Founder Anurag Nema took the idea of a coffee shop that looks like a library – giving a nod to the nearby New York Public Library’s Bryant park branch – and turned it on its side. The walls are not lined with books but the floors and ceiling are. Except that it is all an illusion, a life-size image of books printed on custom tiles. Pendant lighting does not hang from the ceiling; it sticks out from the walls.
The tiny coffee bar of 420 square feet (39 square meters) is the second for owner Eugene Kagansky (the first one is on the Lower East Side) who plans to create an entire empire of coffee shops. Apparently, the next one will be completely upside down.”
(2)THE AUDI SPECTACLE – A NEW BREED OF BILLBOARD
"Audi, a brand exuding an attitude of self confidence and progressive thinking, and associated with the latest technology and innovative design, is a perfect brand to pioneer this entirely original concept, a new breed of “billboard” created by Access Agency. It is a display of four life-size Audi cars, suspended inside the silver rings of a massive Audi symbol attached to an iconic bridge structure or in front of landmark spaces — the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge, Tower Bridge, Venice. The rings rotate around, light-up at night, and move up and down the bridge. Against the backdrop of spectacular urban architecture, the Audi installation reflects Audi’s continuous challenging of the status quo, its capacity to innovate, and its ability to avoid the bland and the ordinary.
But what will create valuable media attention and social media buzz is not just the actual final display, but the entire anticipation, the process of creation, the engineering feat of the installation and the spectacular launch event. The manufacturing and transportation of the gigantic rings, the installation of the rings, the hoisting of the vehicles, the first test of the lights, the rehearsals of the launch…By the time the installation is complete, and the unveiling event is about to start, the news about it will have reached those in the know.
PR — locally and globally — plus participation and rallies by dealers, and other in-town and on-site activities and happenings leading up to the unveiling, will add to the echo effect of this one-of-a-kind promotion. The anticipation, excitement and buzz will culminate in an epic night-time launch event that we envision including a live symphony orchestra playing on a barge right under the suspended rings or on the bridge itself, a fireworks presentation or a LED light show above the bridge, and the ultimate unveiling of the rings.
