This episode of Munchies features Michael White, a New York City chef renowned for his handiwork at Marea, a seafood-focused Italian restaurant on Columbus Circle. Michael assembled a crew of culinary heavyweights for his eating excursion: writer Josh Ozersky, the self-described “Donnie Brasco” of the local food landscape and mastermind behind Meatopia, an annual gastronomical free-for-all rivaling the one documented in this week’s episode; Josh Capon, chef/owner of Burger and Barrel and Lure Fishbar, decorated hamburger champion, and newly minted pudding enthusiast; and Olivia Young, the PR rep for Michael’s restaurant group (and the only person in attendance who declined to pre-game with a full serving of pasta). Michael’s itinerary took us to SriPraPhai, a Thai restaurant in Queens considered to be the best in the five boroughs. Then it was off to Puddin’, an East Village dessert hut with a 23-year-old chef. Our last stop of the evening was Osteria Morini in Soho, where Michael made us a fennel sausage pizza that will be on the menu at Nicoletta—his seventh restaurant—this coming fall.
