Are you seeking new culinary group experiences in a variety of different locations? If you have a strong stomach, you can’t possibly miss out on The Gastronauts, a dining club that has been organizing adventurous meals for five years now, to discover dishes from all over the world that are definitely not for the finicky.
For instance? Cod sperm, goat’s eye, various types of insects and plenty more. The club stems from an idea by Curtiss Calleo and Ben Pauker to enjoy the taste of different cultures, meet new friends, and do animals full justice from the tip of their noses to the end of their tails. But, above all, let’s be honest, because their girlfriends didn’t want to have anything to do with their bizarre culinary adventures.
The Gastronauts can now count on a network of more than one thousand people and monthly dinners with over 70 participants (and a long waiting list) organized in one of about fifty restaurants in New York, located between Staten Island and Bronx, as well as in Los Angeles.
