Top Chefs Join Forces for Hurricane Sandy Relief

Friday, November 2, 2012 at 04:11 PM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

While the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy continues to swamp the Northeast, several Top Chef alumni are doing their part to help make a difference in the wake of this tragedy.

Former Bravo cheftestants Angelo Sosa, Dale Talde, Kevin Sbraga and Jennifer Carroll are joining forces this Monday night at Sosa’s Hell’s Kitchen hotspot Añejo Tequileria y Restaurante to raise needed money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. “The devastation from this storm is heart-wrenching and we are passionate about helping those affected in the Tri-State area and beyond,” explained Sosa. “We are trying to do our part by helping with relief efforts the best way we know how, through food and community support.”
  
Each chef will put their culinary skills to the test by creating a unique dish in true Top Chef-style as part of a four-course tasting menu with cocktail accompaniment. Additional specialty libations created by Añejo’s Beverage Director Joshua Wortman will also be available to raise funds for relief efforts. Spirits will be generously donated by Herradura Tequila and local producer, Jack from Brooklyn.

Seatings are at 6pm and 8pm, tickets are $100 and all proceeds will benefit the Red Cross. Reservations can be made at anejonyc.com, by calling 212.920.4770 or emailing rsvp@anejonyc.com. I hope you’ll join me in supporting this fantastic cause!

Añejo Tequileria y Restaurante is located at 668 10th Avenue (at 47th Street) in NYC

Dine Out to Help Local Farms Devastated by Irene

Monday, September 5, 2011 at 06:09 PM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

While NYC narrowly escaped the wrath of Hurricane Irene, many surrounding areas and communities weren’t as fortunate—and are still struggling with the storm’s devastating aftermath. Some agricultural areas in upstate NY that were hit hardest have lost acres upon acres of flourishing farmland due to major flooding.

Want to help? You can, by making a reservation at one of the many generous New York City restaurants supporting Dine Out Irene. On Sunday, September 25, participating establishments will donate a percentage of their sales to Just Food and GrowNYC, to help affected area farmers rebuild what was lost.

There’s already several big names on board (Blue Hill, Riverpark, Tertulia, Villa Pacri, Waverly Inn) and the list just keeps growing and growing. Hopefully the crops will follow suit.

Support Dine Out Irene.
