On Thursday, February 23, 2023, we brought back our in-person Grand Gourmet – The Flavor of Midtown® event for the first time since 2020. The event showcased 25 of Midtown East's finest restaurants, bars, lounges, and shops. It also drew hundreds of people, including elected officials, business and community leaders, neighborhood stakeholders, local residents, and foodies from all over the city.
After the event, we partnered with City Harvest to rescue over 200 pounds of food, which was delivered to Unity Faith Outreach, a food pantry in Brooklyn. To date, Grand Gourmet has raised over $1 million for homeless services programs in Midtown East.
Thank you to all our sponsors, participants, and event partners that helped make it a truly unforgettable evening!
