Last night, P.S.1 hosted Autumn Harvest, an appetizer/wine/music event held at P.S.1 celebrating P.F.1, the winning installation of the 2008 MoMA/P.S.1 Young Architects Program. P.F.1 is an urban farm built entirely of sustainable materials, and features over fifty kinds of flowers, vegetables, and herbs. For this event, P.S.1 teamed up with Serious Eats fave Gramercy Tavern and chef Michael Anthony to produce a menu using fresh ingredients from the farm. The menu: Tomato Skewers, Zucchini Soup with Kale, Grilled Eggplant with Pickled Peppers, Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Homemade Kielbasa, and Grilled Corn with Jalapeno and Cheese. The kielbasa was a huge hit—on more than one occasion I was surrounded by a group of hungry urbanites begging for the next batch off the grill.
We love how Gramercy Tavern continues to be involved with non-profits: tomorrow evening, Thursday October 2, pastry chef Nancy Olson is preparing an event for A Taste of the Good Life, a wine tasting event and auction to benefit Partnership with Children.
P.F.1 will be on view at P.S.1 until October 19. Make sure you check out the Queens County chickens who live on-site.
