New York, NY (PRWEB) April 28, 2006
Wish you knew how restaurants get their dishes to look so scrumptious or their cocktails to taste just right? Ever wanted to eavesdrop on a winemaker discussing the in's & out's of wine?
Counter Vegetarian Restaurant and Organic Wine & Martini Bar, one of New York's premier vegetarian bistros, has recently launched a new series of succinct, informative videoblogs about cuisine, wines & cocktails. The first three videos have just been released, covering various topics:
- how to mix up a special Counter cosmo http://counternyc.typepad.com/vegetarian/2006/04/counter_cosmo.html
- finishing & plating a special vegan "creme cheese" brulee http://counternyc.typepad.com/vegetarian/2006/04/shay_plating_cr.html
- celebrated winemaker Tony Coturri discussing his vineyard's grenache at a recent winemaker dinner at the restaurant http://counternyc.typepad.com/vegetarian/2006/04/a_chance_to_win.html
The series was dreamed up by Counter's owner, Deborah Gavito, who explains, "At Counter, we've always believed that vegetarian food - and environmentalism -- don't have to be dull or patchouli'ish. They can be stylish & enjoyable -- over half of our regular customers are even carnivores! We've met so many cool people at the restaurant, as well as amazing winemakers & farmers, that this is a way of being able to share what we're doing and what they're doing."
About Counter Restaurant: Located at 105 First Avenue (between 6th & 7th Streets 212.982.5870) in downtown New York's funky East Village, Counter specializes in French-Mediterranean vegetarian dishes -- beautifully presented -- served a chic, upbeat atmosphere. The only organic wine and martini bar of its kind in New York City, Counter’s customers can choose from over 150 organic and biodynamic wines, and a variety of house infused organic martinis and cocktails. The New York Times even feted Counter recently for being the "epicenter" of vivacious organic cocktailing.
Not only about the food, Counter is also dedicated to promoting sustainability, supporting small local organic farmers, and artisanal winemakers who eschew pesticides and practice earth-friendly viticulture.
