Celebrate Flatiron Chefs Recap

We had rain! We had lighting! We had thunder! Most of all, we had one of the best Celebrate Flatiron Chefs! to date. The event was so successful due in large part to the 800 park supporters and die-hard foodies who came out on a rainy night to taste incredible bites prepared by over 30 chefs from esteemed Flatiron neighborhood restaurants.

A little (or a lot!) of rain didn’t stop the star chefs from preparing flavorful small plates while our wine, beer and liquor participants served colorful cocktails, cold beer and refreshing wine to a cheery crowd under the clear top tent!

Thank you to everyone who attended and helped us raise close to $300,000! The funds raised at Celebrate Flatiron Chefs will help keep the park green, safe, active and full of incredible free programming for all!

A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR CHEFS, RESTAURANTS AND BEVERAGE PARTICIPANTS! We are so grateful for your time and delicious food and beverages!
