Underground Eats Launch (plus a @DumboNYC Special for Our Readers)

Have you heard that Underground Eats (UGE) launched a few weeks ago? We profiled this Dumbo based startup in October 2011, and they’ve had some exciting events and alternative dining events recently. One event they featured was the Mast Brothers Chocolate and Kings County Whiskey Tasting Tour, a perfect combination, in our opinion. Kings County Distillery is one of NYC’s oldest whiskey distillery. They use leftover cocoa husks from Brooklyn’s Mast Brothers Chocolate to produce their chocolate whiskey.

Unfortunately, this exclusive evening of chocolate and whiskey happened last week, but there will be others I’m sure. However, UGE’s member’s only site has lots more unique experiences, like a first class ticket (sold out and not available anywhere else) to an evening of culinary history and decadence, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s last supper. Culinary provocateurs Jonny Cigar of The Noble Rot, Hell’s Kitchen’s Rob McCue and Adam Banks of Bravo’s Chef Roblé & Co. have put together this 7 course experience.

The folks at Underground Eats have set up a special URL that will allow readers to register for teh member’s only site. Go to ugeats.com/DumboNYC to sign up. PSssst, we heard that there’s some special news coming up too, so sign up and get access to your exclusive dining experiences.
