Celebrate Mad. Sq. Chefs 2019 Recap
On a warm summer night, Celebrate Mad. Sq. Chefs opened its gates to nearly 800 hungry attendees, offering food from the best restaurants in the Mad. Sq. Park neighborhood and drinks from the best local beverage makers. Representing the 28 participating restaurants were the incredible chefs that make the event possible, donating their time and food, and making sure everyone left full and happy. Guests could easily grab beer, wine, or soda from one of the fantastic brands on site, or head to Liquor Row, which hosted a diverse group of liquor purveyors making cocktails. As everyone ate and drank to their heart’s delight, they could sing along to The Barnstorm playing classic covers all night.
Celebrate Mad. Sq. Chefs helps raise funds to support Madison Square Park Park’s operations, maintenance, and free public programs for all to enjoy. Thank you to all of our chefs, restaurants, and beverage participants for their generosity and< efforts that made this one of the Conservancy’s most memorable Celebrate Mad. Sq. Chefs to date, and to our attendees, who make each event in the Park special. Special thanks to our Co-Chairs Laurie Golub and Neil Luthra and to our sponsors Columbia Property Trust, Four Roses, Grey Group, Josh Cellars and Yext.
