The multi-day event highlighted intimate dinners, late-night parties, and the return of many fan faves including the Blue Moon Burger Bash presented by Pat LaFrieda, the Drag queen brunch, and the Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits Trade Day at Grand Tasting hosted by Wine Spectator.
NYC foodies also enjoyed unique one-night-only collaborations from their favorite NYC chefs in an Intimate Dinner Series presented by Air France. The series featured more than 20 seated dinners held at NYC’s hottest establishments, including the God’s Love We Deliver rooftop terrace, and featured premium tasting menus paired with a variety of high-end wines and spirits. Participating chefs included Giada De Laurentiis, Bryan and Michael Voltaggio, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Marcus Samuelsson, and Alex Guarnaschelli.
Between NYCWFF and its sister festival SOBEWFF, more than $30 million has been raised to benefit the respective charities, and to help draw attention to the vibrant dining cultures and to serve as a platform to drive awareness and engagement all in the name of food.
