Last Wednesday April 6, Hyperallergic LABS Tumblr editor Janelle Grace and I attended a press preview for a collaboration between artist Paul Ramirez-Jonas and Park Avenue Spring chef Kevin Lasko called Plus One, hosted at the restaurant and presented by Creative Time Consulting.

Delicious, but also aesthetically thought provoking. Here are both of our takes on the event, plus a photo essay. Bon appetit!
