  1. […] I’ve watched Palo Santo’s chef Jacques Gautier serve small plates to the masses for years– there he was at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket just two Saturdays ago teaching folks how to make a frittata with spring greens, and who could forget the organ stew and fresh tortillas that were being rolled out before our very eyes at the annual Just Food gala last fall? In April he was the last chef still serving the admiring, drunken crowds at the Bell House where Edible Brooklyn and Manhattan readers packed in for the Good Spirits cocktail party. While we’d downed Blue Point oysters and Pimm’s cups by Walter Foods, elbowed our way to the brisket from Mile End, and had more than our fair share of Ilegal Mezcal, chef Jacques’ ceviche, with no less than seven types of fish bathed in a bight green herb dressing, was still killing it at the end of the night. When the other restaurants had packed up and left, their plates picked clean, and the mixologists set out their last few cocktails for the taking, Jacques was still doling out ceviche served in mussel shells hand over fist. We stood on line, slurping down the fish, licking the last of the sauce, then looped back for seconds, thirds, and fourths. Tonight, the halls of BAM will be teeming with a crowd of oenophiles, eager to drink up the stories of Long Island wine country at Edible Brooklyn’s annual Brooklyn Uncorked event. Be sure that Gautier will be there too, pleasing the crowds with tastes of classic Latin American market food. Then he’ll perform a sort of superman act, and run back to Palo Santo in Park Slope where a party proper for Cinco de Mayo is going down. $25 for unlimited sangria and mole guarantees that this fete will rage til the wee hours.
