Vice’s Munchies series recently followed Tien Ho, a chef that grew up in the City and built a career as a master chef at various City fine dining spots such as Ma Peche and Montmartre. Currently, Ho is the corporate chef for Morgan Hotels, which includes the Hudson Hotel.
We teamed up with Tien, who’s in the midst of developing restaurants in Morgans Hotels all over the world, for a night out in his hometown of NYC. The first stop is L’Apicio in the East Village for some Negronis and lamb ragu. Then it’s off to Corkbuzz in Union Square for some French cuisine and first-class wine. After that, we head to Cannibal in Murray Hill for a serious charcuterie feast. With a whole group now in tow, it’s back to the Hudson Hotel for the final meal, where Tien shows us that even though he’s not in the kitchen these days, he still has his chops.
Chef’s Night Out is a great peek at how some of New York’s best chefs eat and drink around the City.
