On Tuesday, October 19th, City Harvest will hold its 16th annual Bid Against Hunger restaurant tasting event at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street, New York, NY). The VIP Room will open at 6 pm and the Tasting & Silent Auction will take place from 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm.
This walk-around restaurant tasting and auction provides guests with the opportunity to see some of the city’s top chefs in action. This year’s event will feature some of this city’s hottest restaurants, including Blue Hill, Craft, landmarc, Le Bernardin and Tribeca Grill, among others. The samplings will be served on environmentally-friendly materials. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on exclusive prizes in both the live and silent auctions, including exclusive dinners with top chefs, vacation packages, sports memorabilia and concert tickets. VIP Room guests will enjoy an exclusive tasting of regional purveyors’ foods, passed hors d’oeuvres and high-end wines.
Last year, Bid Against Hunger hosted over 800 guests, over 70 of New York City’s top restaurants and raised over $760,000 to provide food for nearly 3.5 million hungry New Yorkers. Participating restaurants included Blue Hill, Convivio, Corton, Craft, Daniel, Gramercy Tavern, landmarc, Le Bernardin, Per Se, and Scarpetta.
