Fancy Friday Favorite Restaurants ~ City Meals On Wheels Event At Rockefeller Center

You know it’s going to be the beginning of a great summer evening when it starts off with an icy cold “adult beverage” snow cone from the Pegu Club.

We were at the 26th Annual Chefs’ Tribute to honor James Beard & benefit Citymeals-0n-Wheels at Rockefeller Center with our “NYC-friends” Ken & Elyse.

Did you ever wonder what it would feel like to get a tasting from every great restaurant you could think of?  That’s just what this event was all about.  Great chefs gathered together for a great cause to benefit the Citymeals-on-Wheels in the fabulous gifted venue of Rockefeller Center.  The event themed “Taste of Home” featured the chef’s chosen flavors of home.

Here’s a bit of fancy food and fun we had that evening ~

One of the fun highlights was finding that Proof on Main from Louisville, Kentucky was present.  Kristin and I had recently enjoyed the restaurant while we on the GE Momsperience trip at 21c Hotel.  (Take note:  I did not see any red penguins by their table.)

One of my favorite stops was this delicious dessert from Daniel ~


The evening eventually sighed to a full finish, our senses were overcome with the sights, sounds and food stories of the passions of the artists that surrounded us.








We snuck in the last sip and dance of a wonderful event.











We tasted more favorite restaurants in one night than we ever thought we could.  It’s so fun to try new tastes and check out new talent.  What are some of your favorite restaurants?  Leave your comments below!
