What makes the food stellar? Only that they will be the creations of 10 standout NYC chefs: Sam Mason (Tailor / Empire Mayo / Lady Jays), Phillip Kirschen-Clark (Vandaag), Christina Tosi (Momofuku Milk Bar), Sam Talbot (Imperial No 9 / Surf Lodge), NoahBernamoff (Mile End), Thomas Kelly & David Schillace (Mexicue), Jenny McCoy (Craft), TimSullivan (Jazz at Lincoln Center's Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola), Daniel Holzman (The MeatballShop) and Oliver Kremer & Tyler Lohman (Dos Toros). Not too shabby.
Each chef is put to the grilling test to create a unique dish inspired by BBQ, and you get to sample their culinary creations. Your general admission ticket for $60 gets you this, plus two free drinks and music enjoyment 1pm-4pm. A $75 premium VIP ticket admits you an hour earlier at noon to get a head start on the festivities. Tickets can be purchased here. Spend your Saturday by the grill!
