RED BANK, N.J. - It was Haute Cuisine paired with Haute Couture at Garmany located at 121 Broad Street, in Red Bank, on May 3.  Billed as “In Good Taste” and part of the 'Garmany Event Series',  the evening featured an intimate gathering with Designer Vivek Nagrani and Celebrity Chef David Burke.  

Garmany, an exquisite upscale luxury clothing and accessory store for both women and men, created the perfect venue for guests as they mingled with sartorial and culinary vanguards, all while shopping the store's designer merchandise.  Nagrani, creator of artisan men’s clothing 'designed for the man who calls the world home,' shared moments with guests. Everyone was treated with the fine hospitality of cocktails from Garmany's complimentary bar, and tasty samplings like short-rib dumplings over Moroccan glaze and pastrami smoked salmon, from the menu and specials served at David Burke’s newest endeavor, Drifthouse Restaurant, located at the Driftwood Cabana Club, in Sea Bright.  

Drifthouse, located on the second level of the Club offers spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and sunset views over the Shrewsbury River. Open now year round to the public with happy hour and dinner served daily, Drifthouse is also serving up a delicious Sunday brunch, just in time for Mother's Day. Driftwood also offers a private dining room and when in season, outdoor deck dining. Robert Burke, David's brother is the Executive Chef and both he and Chef David together created the restaurant's American menu.   Chef David Burke comments in the video here, standing next to Drifthouse manager, April Nikorak:

Drifthouse manager, April Nikorak says, "Drifthouse is the perfect destination for your next dinner or Sunday brunch at the Jersey Shore. You will find the menu to be another one of Chef David Burke's success stories. It was designed along with his brother, our Drifthouse Master Chef, Robert Burke, and it is exquisite."  A great time was had by all and many guests were able to comfortably do their shopping while relaxing in Garmany, where hospitality is served up 'in good taste' with style and elegance.
