Join us for City Harvest’s signature fall tasting experience and support our work feeding New Yorkers in need. Guests will be immersed in this year’s lively Havana Nights theme as they bid on once-in-a-lifetime experiences, enjoy live entertainment, and sample food and drinks from over 50 of New York City’s best chefs, restaurants, and mixologists. This year’s event will include Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin, Emma Bengtsson of Aquavit, Angie Mar of the Beatrice Inn, Angie Rito of Don Angie, and Seki Shi of Sushi Seki.

Chef Geoffrey Zakarian will host VIPs in GZ’s Social Club, featuring interactive gourmet tastings, luxury purveyors, specialty cocktails, superior reserve wines, a special gift to take home, and unique entertainment.

All proceeds from the event will support City Harvest’s work to feed the more than 1.2 million New Yorkers facing hunger.
