Chef Mehta has dreamed of having a private kitchen so personal and intimate he can tailor menus to each who dine. Me and You is that dream coming to life. When you dine at Me and You, you dine in Chef Mehta’s private kitchen, and the whole evening is really about the experience as well as the food. Chef will present each course, telling stories about the ingredients, and on occasion, their connection to a memory from his childhood in India.

The space is really intimate, with 1 big communal table, and an open kitchen so you can really be with the Chef for the whole evening. The vibe is quite warm, dimly lit candle light, exposed brick, records playing, with the scent of fresh flowers from the season and the amazing flavors cooking up in the kitchen. It’s all about shared experiences in Chef’s kitchen, as he believes eating is for sharing and creating memories.

We have a few options for dining in Chef’s kitchen. First, you can book the space for a private experience for up to 14 people. When you do, you’ll be sent a survey to fill in for your group, with about 10 questions regarding your preferences for flavors, texture, wine, etc. Chef uses the survey responses to create a tailored menu just for your event.

Second, Chef will open his kitchen for dinners in which he creates the menu, and opens the table up to the first 14 guests who make a booking. For this menu, he’ll feature flavors of the season, the latest wines on his preferred list. Chef Mehta  is passionate about the intersection of art and dining and will host collaboration dinners every alternate month featuring other chefs, artists, writers, designers, the like. This will be a fun forum for Chef to collaborate with another like minded talent, as well as to offer an opportunity for our guests to dine with the chef and artist of the night – to get to know them, view their art, or discuss their book, whatever it may be.

About Chef Mehta

It is his cultural heritage that fills Chef Jehangir Mehta with endless inspiration, and his favorite ingredients, fruits and spices. It all started when Mumbai-born Jehangir took an interest in the goings-on of the kitchen in his childhood home.

Chef's first job at L'Absinthe New York in 1996 was a springboard for his diverse and storied career to date, including cooking at Typhoon Brewery along side James Chew, Union Pacific with Rocco DiSpirito, working with Jean-George Vongerichten at Jean-George his name sake restaurant, and then to open what became one of the hottest destinations in New York, Mercer Kitchen, and partnering with Didier Virot on the opening of Upper West Side's culinary destination Aix.

In 2007 Chef Mehta released a cookbook, "Mantra, The Rules of Indulgence" (Harper Collins), and opened his first restaurant, Graffiti, followed by the opening of his Tribeca restaurant, Mehtaphor in 2010.

Chef Mehta was a participant in Food Network's Next Iron Chef Redemption 2012, the runner-up at the Next Iron Chef 2009, a participant in the Iron Chef America and a guest on Martha Stewart Living.

He is the chef ambassador for Beyond Celiac and tours the country to encourage more fine dining restaurants to offer gluten free options to customers.

Chef is extremely passionate about helping children enjoy food and eat healthy. Ten years ago, he was a pioneer in this field, when he started "Candy Camp", a fun filled private cooking class for children. Today he hosts "Gastro Kids After School", and works with kids at PS.33 in Manhattan as part of the "Wellness in Schools" initiative.
