We were thrilled to be part of the record making evening for City Harvest’s Bid Against Hunger.  The event raise 1.1 million dollars in a single night!  The event drew it’s usual affluent crowd including bold faced names such as Eric Ripert, Marc Murphy, Ron Ben-Isral and Gail Simmons.  The money raised for the evening will help provide nearly 5 million meals for the  city’s hungry.


The sold-out event featured chefs and culinary experts from over 70 of Manhattan and Brooklyn’s most esteemed restaurants, including Le Bernardin, Tribeca Grill, Craft, Blue Hill, Buttermilk Channel and Landmarc. The walk-around tasting and auction provided guests with the opportunity to see some of the city’s top chefs in action.
