NYC CMJ DAY 4
The London elusive Vietnamese sandwich (bahn mi) is everywhere in NYC. A staple of snack attacks. The slightly lacklustre bahn mi effort in LA was set right with a visit to NYC's famed Baoguette founded by Vietnamese chef and restaurateur Michael "Bao" Hyunh. Set off with a little more Sriracha, the sweet and spicy homemade BBQ pork nestled in with the pate, terrine, pickled daikon, carrots and coriander. Still looking for that inch thick pate... but it was a good pick me up on the wettest of windy days and fodder for the Fader and Levis party at the boujie mid town party spot, the Ace Hotel.
Midnight Juggernauts were meh, missed the debut of Chauffeur (Mark Ronson, Theophilus London and Sam Sparro's new group) but Florence did it again with an acoustic set. The night ended as it should with late night steak and oysters.
