Loring Place by Dan Kluger is the culmination of a lifelong dream for the chef who has cooked in some of New York’s most beloved restaurants, for the city’s top restaurateurs, and is best known for leading the teams at ABC Kitchen and ABC Cocina as Executive Chef (named Best New Restaurant 2011 by the James Beard Foundation).
At Loring Place, chef Kluger’s skill for creating delicious market-driven dishes, with unexpected but incredibly pleasing flavor combinations, is on full display. The menu, comprised of small and large shareable plates, spotlights farms and farmers whom Kluger has gotten to know intimately over 20+ years of frequenting the Union Square Greenmarket.

We have reserved the ENTIRE restaurant EXCLUSIVELY for our group of "parents with pipsqueaks" -- a unique chance to enjoy a refined but relaxed meal for the whole family!
BLUE HILL STONE BARNS
In spring of 2004, Blue Hill at Stone Barns opened within the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in Pocantico Hills, New York. The Barbers helped create the philosophical and practical framework for Stone Barns Center, a working four-season farm and educational center just 30 miles north of New York City, and continue to help guide it in its mission to create a consciousness about the effect of everyday food choices.
Sourcing from the surrounding fields and pasture, as well as other local farms, Blue Hill at Stone Barns highlights the abundant resources of the Hudson Valley.
We'll gather for a drinks and canapé reception before taking our seats -- or highchairs! -- in the main dining room. All together at the table, we'll enjoy a specially-crafted tasting menu, with the option of wine matched to each course. (Of course, we can accommodate vegetarian, vegans, and those with food allergies -- please note any dietary restrictions on the order form.) As always at Nibble and Squeak, the ticket price is inclusive of tax and gratuity.
Thanks to Mommy Nearest, all kids eat for FREE (from an abbreviated but delicious menu). Please do register EACH child, including infants, so that we can reserve enough space for your party.
Photography for the event will be by the talented Jaye McLaughlin from The Life in Your Years Photography!
