Katie Button takes Cúrate to NYC
Chef Katie Button takes residency at the Chefs Club in NYC, highlighting the classic Spanish tapas of Cúrate.
This December, James Beard Award-nominated Asheville chef Katie Button brings her beloved Spanish tapas restaurant, Cúrate to New York City with a two month residency at NoLita’s Chefs Club.
Open for dinner, Cúrate, which means “cure yourself” in Spanish, reflects the restorative effects of gathering together over a delicious meal. The experience recalls Spain’s bustling vermuterías and lively tapas culture, inspired by Button’s years working for Ferran Adrià and José Andrés.
A meal might begin with fried Marcona almonds, jamón ibérico de bellota and a classic hora del vermut snack such as berberechos — canned Spanish cockles served with potato chips and house-made salsa de aperitivo — paired with a chilled glass of vermouth, cider or sherry. Favorite Cúrate tapas, ranging from salt cod fritters topped with honey to traditional Catalan fare such as rossejat — thin noodles with squid ink cooked paella-style — Segovian suckling pig, grilled, head-on carabineros and braised rabbit, all paired with cocktails and a full Spanish wine list selected by Button’s husband and business partner, Félix Meana.
Cúrate at Chefs Club will open December 4 through February 1 offering dinner beginning at 5:30pm Mondays through Saturdays.
