Celebrate Flatiron Chefs: The Last Bite

Celebrate Flatiron Chefs has come and gone – but talk of this fantastic food event is sure to remain on the tongues of guests until next year’s event!

While temperatures reached well into the 90s, that didn’t stop 800 guests from coming into the park to sample food from the best chefs and restaurants that New York City has to offer. Over 30 chefs from the most talked-about Flatiron eateries created a wildly inventive and diverse menu, while their beverage counterparts provided refreshing cocktails, beer, and wine to help beat the heat! Each participant generously donated their product, time, and efforts in support of the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s goal of keeping the park safe, clean, green, and filled with free programs for people of all ages to enjoy.

Our guests also contributed a lion’s share of the effort, helping the Conservancy raise significant funds in support of Madison Square Park’s mission – our most successful Celebrate Flatiron Chefs event yet!

Thank you to everyone who came to the event including our participants, sponsors, friends, and guests – all of whom played a major role in helping sustain and improve the fun-filled, family-friendly, beautiful, and exquisitely-programmed Madison Square Park.

Celebrate Flatiron Chefs! is supported by Condé Nast Traveler, Delta Air Lines, Los Cabos Tourism Board, MasterCard ® Priceless ® New York, Mexico Tourism Board, and Seagram’s Ginger Ale.
