After four years of increasing hype and (sold-out) popularity in NYC, LA, Vegas, SF and Miami, the nation’s preeminent celebration of Asian food and cocktail culture, known as LUCKYRICE, celebrates its 5th Anniversary in the city where it all started – New York! For the very first time this year, LUCKYRICE and BOMBAY SAPPHIRE East will be presenting an expanded format with quarterly pop-up festivities in New York throughout 2014. As always, LUCKYRICE will bring together renowned chefs and mixologists from New York’s stylish culinary scene to create the ultimate Asian cocktail + culinary experience. Each imaginative dish will be paired with modern Asian-inspired cocktails by BOMBAY SAPPHIRE East, the official spirit of the festival, to bring out the unique flavors of each culinary creation.
