Hello CC & BT followers! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season with friends and family! I was blessed to experience Christmas in New York City this year, as well as celebrate the holidays when my parents came to visit the week after. All in all, 2014 was an eventful year, and I’m excited to see what 2015 brings!
It was nice having a few days off for the holidays, but January 2nd meant back to work at P&K. The month of January is notorious for being a slow month for restaurants. With the weather getting colder, and the many expenses of December, most people just want to stay in and eat at home. With this in mind, we were expected a slower month at Pig and Khao. Little did we know that a very special guest would come in to eat last Thursday…Bobby Flay! We had no idea he was coming in, but he walked into the restaurant with his wife, and sat at the chef’s counter to enjoy a meal. It was amazing feeding such an influential person in the food industry, and it was a meal I will remember forever.
The next morning I woke up and did my usual social media once-over. When I checked my Twitter account, I quickly came upon a tweet Bobby had posted about his meal at Pig and Khao the previous night! Since that notorious tweet, the restaurant has been busier than ever. We actually did a record amount of covers on Saturday night, making Pig and Khao history! It’s really amazing what can come from a little free publicity. Feeding any chef like Bobby Flay is a cook’s dream, and I’m so happy to see what other chefs come into the restaurant in the future!
