Last Tuesday marked the annual Summer in the City restaurant tasting and cocktail party to benefit New York organization City Harvest.
City Harvest is a food rescue organization that is devoted to collecting excess food from restaurants, grocers, farms, and many other food related industries and redistributing it to hundreds of thousands hungry New Yorkers.
Over 600 guests gathered at the Metropolitan Pavilion to sample good food and raise over $270,000, making the event a tremendous success. Rock band Savoir Adore provided the live entertainment and impressed us with their musical talent.
