The Kitchen NYC hosted the exclusive kick-off party for Martini Week with Thrillist. The city’s food elite turned out to see top mixologists showcase their talent with live demonstrations of their mixing mastery. Guests noshed on hors d’oeurves from Top Chef’s Cynthia Sestito as they sipped on Bombay Sapphire and Grey Goose martini cocktails. It was a night of glitz and glam food from quail legs to Grey Goose cupcakes.
