Events NYC | Opening Night at the A&D Building: the Art and Design of Cooking

The A&D Building ---Architects and Designer Building--- hostedyesterday the annual Opening Night.

Many of the showrooms from the 58th Street building solely dedicated to interior design, opened to the public from 6 to 9 for an ongoing series of cocktail receptions flooded with White Cosmopolitan and Prosecco.

The majority of showrooms ---with the exception of B&B Italia--- presented kitchens, with an high-tech interpretation of cuisine in minimalistic stainless steels appliances and glass tile counter-tops.

The art of cooking was often illustrated by chefs preparing delicious hors d'oeuvres right on-site, as at the GE Monogram, where flat panel CCTV and video projection screen displayed in real time enlarged details of the cooking.

The epicurean atmosphere was completed by the enjoyment of views of the Bloomberg tower across the street.
