Kevin Sbraga is hosting chef Michael Laiskonis on Wednesday, November 6th for an “inspiring” Lithuanian menu. Is your eyebrow raised? Well maybe you don’t know enough about Laiskonis. The classically trained chef was Le Bernardin’s pastry chef and is now the creative director at New York’s Institute of Culinary Education. He’s also won accolades from Guide Michelin, the James Beard Foundation, Bon Appetit and the New York Times among others.
Laiskonis is also proud of his Lithuanian heritage and much like he’s doing at COOK, he’s showing off the traditions and flavors of Lithuania in his creative menu.
The dinner is $150 per person including beverage pairing and all taxes and gratuity.
