NEW YORK (WLNY) — The Oscars aren’t just about the fashion and the awards, it’s also about the fabulous food served at all the post-show parties.

Chef Julian Proujansky, of OMAR’s La Ranita in the West Village, gave The Couch a taste of some gourmet cuisine inspired by an Oscar contender.

“‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’ movie is all about decadence and over-the-top ridiculousness, so the food here is inspired by the same,” Proujansky said.
