May 8, 7:00 P.M. Dinner: Mason Hereford’s Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner Mash-up

May 08, 2024 07:00 PM

A Collaboration of NOLA-Based Molly’s Rise and Shine, Hungry Eyes, and Turkey and the Wolf    

25 11th Ave, New York, NY 10011, USA

You don’t have to decide between breakfast, lunch, or dinner at this collaborative meal featuring three of James Beard Award nominee Mason Hereford’s New Orleans restaurants. In one sitting, guests will get a taste of Molly’s Rise and Shine’s breakfast menu, the savory side of Hungry Eyes, and of course, Turkey and the Wolf will sandwich it all together.
In the kitchen with Mason Hereford will be his talented team—Phil Cenac, chef/partner of Hungry Eyes, and Colleen Quarls, chef/partner of Molly’s Rise and Shine, and James Beard Award semifinalist for Best Chef South. The one-year-old Hungry Eyes, known for its “luxury drinking food” (think martinis and natural wine) was recently named one of GQ’s Best New Restaurants in America and listed as one of the 25 Best Restaurants in New Orleans by the New York Times and Molly's Rise and Shine was named a Food and Wine Best New Restaurant in 2020. 

Don’t miss your opportunity to sample the fare of this impressive and creative collection of New Orleans restaurants at this one-time event!

About Mason Hereford:  
Mason Hereford is the chef and owner of Turkey and the Wolf, a counter service-only joint that Food & Wine and Esquire listed as one of the most important restaurants of the decade, and Bon Appétit named the Best New Restaurant in America in 2017. He also owns Molly's Rise and Shine, a breakfast spot nearby, named one of the ten Best New Restaurants in America in 2020 by Food & Wine magazine. His cookbook, Turkey and the Wolf: Flavor Trippin' in New Orleans received a James Beard Award nomination in 2023 and became a New York Times Bestseller, after the first shipment spent months lost at sea. He recently partnered with the co-chef of Turkey and the Wolf, Philip Cenac, and his wonderful wife, Lauren Agudo to open a new restaurant called Hungry Eyes. They serve luxury drinking food, zippy natural wines, and lipstick smeared martinis in a little spot on Magazine Street. Mason was born and raised on rollerblades and gas station food in rural Virginia. He was a James Beard Award nominee for Best Chef: South in 2020 and a semifinalist in the same category in 2019.  He currently lives in New Orleans and will never leave.
