Season Opener at the Milling Room BY EMILY KLEIN, Vice Chargée de Presse THE NEW YORK Bailliage heralded the 2015-2016 Chaîne season on September 21 at Owner/Chef Scott Bryan's newest venture, The Milling Room. Formerly the lead chef at Veritas and Apiary, Chef Bryan is also the alum of such venues as Le Bernardin, Bouley, Lespinasse, and the Gotham Bar and Grill. For this event, he cre- ated an exceptional menu that reflected both his personal panache and the spirit of the Chaîne. In Kitchen Confidential , Anthony Bourdain has an entire chapter devoted to Chef Bryan, whom he describes as a "muss, no fuss, old-school… cook of the first order." Chef Bryan's new Upper West Side eat- ery is earning kudos for combining a rustic ambiance with elevated, casual fare. The Milling Room is also develop- ing a loyal following for its updates on classic cocktails. Attendees' palates were awakened by dazzling displays of Chef Bryan's culinary genius. They were also indebted to Vice Conseiller Gastronomique Omar Khan and Dame de la Chaîne Leslie Khan for their generous wine dona- tions. Vive la Chaîne!
