Vegetable Forward, with Chef Amy Sur-Trevino


Spring 2021, and all its glory has sprung in downtown, New York, City.

Last week we had the palatable, pleasure of sampling the new 2021 Happy Hour cocktail menu at Malibu Farm, New York City. Created and prepared by their new Executive Chef Amy Sur-Trevino. We took pleasure in tasting an array of vegetable-forward small plates, where the love for spice, lemon, and fresh produce had no limits to its deliciousness.

Malibu Farm, founded by Chef Helene Henderson, who started her brand small, growing organically. Using mostly whole wheat flour, and whole grains, lots of veggies, and fruits. Chef Henderson’s mission has been to serve farm-to-table fare.

Here in New York, she pair’s her dishes with a well-balanced refreshing list of cocktails. The new Happy Hour menu invites you to come in, relax, take in some of Lower Manhattan’s best city views, while enjoying a safe, socially distanced, evening, for you, and your tastebuds.

If you love spice, lemon, and crispy fresh vegetables, then you must be sure to stop in for a savory bite, while sipping a flavorful cocktail.

It’s been a very long time since we experienced a restaurant sampling, and it was well worth the wait.

Here’s a sneak peek at a few dishes we happily sampled.

Grace Capobianco, CEO/Publisher of Downtown Media & Production was born to be a visionary. She has spent the majority of her life working, developing and marketing innovative media products that not only engage and inform but also bring entire communities together. Utilizing her personal vision as a professional guide, Grace started her first company, Tropical Publishing, when she was just 27 years old and from this moment on, she knew that entrepreneurship was her passion. On a perpetual quest to bring innovative and relevant news to communities, she also created, developed and published the first ever Chamber of Commerce magazine for the Palm Beaches, The South Florida Office Guide. Evolving within the realm of publishing, she moved on to launch Up The Coast magazine in the 1980’s, a guide to Jupiter, in north Florida, where the population aggrandized from 9,000 to more than 70,000 today, and then continued to hone in on niche markets with the launch of publications like Alternative Medicine and NewBeauty. Simultaneously, she launched ATSI, a telecommunications company, which sold Mitel and Siemens products to her publishing clients. The idea of Downtown Magazine NYC was born for Grace in the wake of the devastation of 9/11. A Lower Manhattan resident at this time, Grace saw firsthand the incredible sense of community the neighborhood had demonstrated during these trying times, as well as its immense strength and perseverance. She explored every angle of launching a magazine that would speak to this community but initially felt the timing was just too soon. It wasn’t until 2010 that Grace felt the community was ready to hear its voice and launched Downtown Magazine NYC.
