VICE Eats with Action at Marea

Welcome to our new food series with Action Bronson, where we’ll travel the world with Action and his motley crew of associates to check out the finest dives and dimes of the restaurant scene. From halal stands to Michelin star restaurants, Action and his rotating cast of dinner companions will dine in a wide range of remarkable spots to give us their honest opinions—both on and off the plate.

In this debut episode, Action is joined by friend and cousin by association, Big Body Bes, a self-proclaimed performer from Brooklyn. The duo pays a visit to NYC’s two-Michelin-star seafood restaurant, Marea, where chef Michael White cooks up an elaborate six-course meal involving a decadent series of seafood dishes; everything from four styles of crudo to fusilli with red wine-braised octopus and bone marrow, hand-made lamb agnolotti, and five types of desserts. At the end of the meal, not a crumb was left in sight.

With the Dom Pérignon flowing, it was a feast for the history books. Or in the words of Big Body Bes, “this ain’t no Red Lobster shit."
