In addition to enjoying the excellent food, from some of the top chefs in the city (think: Gramercy Tavern and Per Se), guests mingled in the beautiful space, which the designers Van Wyck & Van Wyck had transformed into a garden complete with vegetarian chandeliers. After dinner, guests participated in a live auction for items including a private dinner with David Chang, a tour and tasting at the Met Breuer, dinner parties at Vice HQ and “bon appetit” magazine, and an ice cream party at Morgenstern’s.
