Boston Chefs Throwing Mega Fundraiser for New York Restaurants Hurt by Hurricane Sandy
Ken Oringer of Toro and Boston pals Jamie Bissonnette, Ming Tsai, and Tony Maws will throw a $500-per-person, 50-seat dinner at Mike's City Diner on Wednesday evening to benefit restaurant-industry victims of Hurricane Sandy. The price is hefty, but the wares are tasty!
Boston magazine's Chowder reports that white alba truffles, lobster, and foie gras will figure prominently on the menu, concocted by chefs Oringer, Tsai, Bissonnette, Maws, Neptune Oyster's Michael Serpa, and Flour's Joanne Chang. Island Creek Oysters will also be in full effect with a raw bar. That $25,000 will go directly to the Red Cross and will be earmarked specifically for New York City restaurants. Boston chefs have always been charitable folks, and since Oringer is a bona-fide member of the New York restaurant community now, the cause hits even closer to home.
Reserve a seat and get at those truffles by e-mailing Toro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
