What do Harlem hotness The Cecil, new omakase masters O Ya, Upper East Side cocktail den Seamstress, and Battery Park City's delicious North End Grill all have in common? They're coming together along with our hosts, the team at Pier A at The Battery, to host a special evening of chef's tastings and drinks on Monday, June 15 benefitting the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.
If you haven't yet been to the beautifully renovated and just recently reopened Pier A, you're in for a treat. The pier juts into New York Harbor, offering stunning views. In addition to great food, the event showcases top designers partnering with each restaurant to create unique tablescapes. Most importantly, all money raised from tickets to the event goes to benefit the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, which serves 14,000 youths in The Bronx every year, more than 50% of which live below the poverty line.
Please, join us. Tickets start at $100 for individuals, and a VIP option offers early access. It will be a great night for a truly great cause.
