City Grit is not a restaurant and not an underground supper club. So, what is it? And how do you find out what’s cooking? And most importantly, how do you join the party?
City Grit is the brainchild of Sarah Simmons, a North Carolina native, recently named one of America’s Greatest New Cooks by Food and Wine Magazine. She launched City Grit in 2011, in the heart of NoLita, NYC, as a culinary salon that brings both well known and lesser known chefs to the basement kitchen of an old brick schoolhouse to strut their stuff. Guests dine at tables on the first floor of the schoolhouse which serves as a showroom for handcrafted furniture by day and morphs into informal dining areas by night.
