New York

Even though Jamie has been visiting New York for over 10 years he never ventured out of Manhattan. This trip takes him away from the high-end restaurants and 5-star hotels he’s used to and drops him in the middle of the world’s most ethnically diverse area: Queens. Jamie uncovers things he’s never imagined: a restaurant run in a family’s living room and another making home-cooked Colombian food for illegal immigrants. He also stumbles across an “anti-restaurant scene where people open their homes to strangers, provide them with restaurant quality food for wallet-friendly prices and send them away happy. These are known as supper clubs. After exploring the Egyptian, Peruvian & Szechuan communities in Queens, Jamie decides to host his own supper club, with a menu that pays homage to New York’s eclectic mishmash of food cultures.
