At botanically minded beauty emporium MALIN+GOETZ, Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz throw some of Manhattan's best dinner parties.
Usually stores close up at night, but one evening a month, the Manhattan shop MALIN+GOETZ becomes the setting for one of the best dinner parties in town. Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz are the proprietors of this sleek little beauty emporium, which sells botanically based products like peppermint shampoo and cilantro conditioner. For the after-hours parties, Goetz converts a work table into a dining table for 12 and covers it with light, herb-inflected dishes like rosemary chicken breasts. "These evenings are a great way to meet people in fashion, design and beauty," says Goetz. "We also invite friends - especially dog people. Our two bulldogs spend the day with us at the shop."
