call your mom!

For me, May is synonymous with M-O-M. I’m a mom to a pit bull rather than humans, but I’m a daughter, too, and the qualities of a good mom—being nurturing, responsible, and a fair person—were taught to me by my mother, Elsa. She was the one who taught me to appreciate what’s most important in life. I appreciate hard work and the privilege of doing work that I enjoy. I appreciate good food, art, film, music, and the ability to be moved to tears and laughter easily. I appreciate animals for making me a more compassionate person. I appreciate a sense of adventure, talking to strangers, and the fun of getting lost in new places. I appreciate my family and friends for their advice and support. For all these reasons, I…

tea’d up

SPIN THE GLOBE “Just because high tea is an English affair, there’s no reason you can’t use halvah for a sweet bite or dim sum for a savory option,” says Kevin Chun, chef at Harvey, in the Williamsburg Hotel in Brooklyn. THROW IN A THEME “Pick one that inspires you and have fun with it!” says Mourad Khiat, pastry chef at London’s Berkeley Hotel. He created Prêt-à-Portea, a tea service inspired by London fashion week. (Picture a cake made to look like a Burberry cape.) YOU DO YOU “Use foods and teas that are personal to you,”says Gabrielle Jammal, “tea sommelier” at Baccarat Hotel in New York City. Baccarat’s service, for example, taps into the brand’s royal history, with menus inspired by Louis XV. How posh!…

it’s always sunny

Sunny Ozell is a musician you’ll be hearing a lot more about (and not because she’s Sir Patrick Stewart’s wife). The New York City singer’s sophomore album, the rootsy Overnight Lows, is due out this summer, and it’s the soundtrack you’ll want to listen to on sultry nights. She also has legit food cred. She has worked with New York Times food columnist Melissa Clark, and celeb chef David Chang had a cameo in the video for her single “Git Gone.” So when it comes to entertaining offstage, Sunny knows what’s important—namely Champagne, in-season eats, and not sweating the small stuff. FOCUS ON THE FOOD My hostessing style is pretty darn lazy in terms of presentation, but I’m exacting when it comes to stuff people are gonna put in their mouths. I…

sweet service!

When Sweetbitter, a novel by Stephanie Danler, came out in May 2016, food lovers gobbled it up with the same voracious appetite that the novel’s heroine had for all that New York has to offer—from oysters and prosciutto to bad boys and booze. Two years later, the story of 22-year-old Tess, who lands a job as a waiter at a fancy-pants restaurant, will play out in a six-episode series on Starz starting May 6. In preparation for filming, the actors (pictured below, Caitlin FitzGerald, left, and Ella Purnell) underwent a crash course in fine-dining service, overseen by Justine Slattery, a front-of-house restaurant consultant. “I tried to condense my 15 years of fine-dining experience into 10 hours,” Slattery says. Here are her tips for turning up the service at your next…
