A couple of public service announcements:
First, for anyone looking for restaurant equipment, or looking to sell some, NRN has soft-launched a web site to link buyers and sellers. Check out Anything 4 Restaurants. Your feedback is welcome.
Secondly, for New Yorkers in the foodservice industry, Aureole has a special for you in advance of its move to its new Bryant Park location next spring.
Every Monday, the restaurant is offering a five-course tasting menu for $45. Some specially priced wines will be available, or if you prefer to bring your own, the corkage fee will be waived.
For obvious reasons, Aureole asks that managers make reservations for their staff (or for themselves) and identify them as being in the business, and that they make the reservations by end of service on Friday.
