The James Beard Home is located in the West Village neighborhood of New York City, down a quaint little West Village kind-of-street. I was surprised that prior to this dinner, I had passed by the JBF home unknowingly, many times. I suppose I had expected a grand entryway with a red carpet walkway and a romantically-lit awning.
Instead, I walked up to the inconspicuous door on W. 12th Street and rang the doorbell, to enter in to James Beard's actual former home, historically preserved, where some of the best food in all of New York City is prepared and has been prepared for decades.
AFAR partnered with the JBF and Tourism Australia to bring Evenings AFAR, an exquisite 7 course dinner held at the James Beard home. More events like this will be coming in the future, but if you're a 'foodie' and having a James Beard experience is on your list, check out their website for upcoming events to have a JBF experience of your own.
