Good News Monday!
We have been slacking for a while in contest-giveaway department.
Here's one that you don't want to miss on if you are in NY area on Thursday (November 15, 2012) and that I am happy to feature here as i have been a reader of Nicholas Lander Restaurant Column in the FT Week End for years.
Two Tickets for The Art of the Restaurateur at 92 Y Tribeca are for the taking (one ticket per winner,two winners).
Here's what's on the program:
"This Thursday, join Financial Times restaurant critic and author Nicholas Lander, restaurateurs Will Guidara (Eleven Madison Park, NoMad) and Maguy Le Coze (Le Bernardin) and famed hospitality interior designer Adam D. Tihany (Per Se, Daniel), with writer Bill Buford (Heat), for a conversation on The Art of the Restaurateur, in celebration of Lander's new book of the same name, recently called "a must-read for restaurant lovers" by Details magazine.
In a world where chefs get all the attention, the panel will discuss the unsung art of the restaurateur and how the owner's creative vision can often be the difference in making a restaurant successful. Until 30 years ago, restaurateurs were considered the most important figures in any restaurant's success, with chefs consigned to the kitchen. This process began to change with the elevation of chef-patrons in the 1970s and has continued with the rise of the celebrity chef. The profession continues to evolve in fascinating ways that will be explored in the discussion."
How can you win these tickets?
Answer this simple question:

Can you think of a better way to take a break from talking about Sandy and at same time celebrate publication of Nicholas Lander The Art of the Restaurateur (Phaidon Press, Fall 2012)?
Winners will surely want to bring someone along.
