40 of the top local chefs were showcased at the New York Magazine Around the World Taste Event at the Skylight Soho this past Monday. Proceeds from this event go to City Harvest. The food was amazing and my Husband and I were happily full at the end of the night. After tasting almost everything there I decided to make a photo list of my favorite savory bites, sweet bites and bites I missed because I was to full (next year for sure).
