Vanilla Goodness

Last week I enjoyed Madagascar in it’s liquid form at Tailor in the West Village.  Our hostess with the mostest, the brand ambassador for Navan Vanilla Liqueur (which is, of course, a liqueur made from Madagascar vanilla beans and cognac), Aisha Sharpe, was out in full form (she’d been drinking since brunch that morning).  This extra special dinner/cocktail pairing was inspired by the avant-garde kitchen that inhabits Tailor, and the talent that is exuded behind the stick here.  Eben Freeman is the man behind the bar, and he creates magic whenever a shaker is placed in his hands.  And whenever Navan is placed in anybody’s paws, they become Houdini.

I’ve included a few photos below of that magical Sunday evening below.  Check them out and go to Tailor. 

Here’s Eben looking mighty snazzy and talking up a storm.

The rowdy crowd that night at Tailor.  Look closely and you can just make out H there at the head of the table.  Who the heck does he think he is?  A recent B.A.R. graduate or something?

Antoine Gervais from Navan/Grand Marnier, and Aisha.  Navan was the star of the night.

Eben in his hole – right where he belongs!
