Chefs & Champagne New York Online Bidding Has Begun!

Resto

Chefs & Champagne, our annual tasting event in the Hamptons, is still over two weeks away, but the excitement of our silent auction has already begun. One of our favorite items is this large format feast at New York City's Resto. Should you win this package, your task is simple: find seven friends and pick an animal from one of Resto's many purveyors. The rest is up to the restaurant's talented chef, Bobby Hellen. He'll prepare a spectacular feast for you and your guests using the entire animal you've selected, whether its cochon du lait, lamb, or spring goat. This is an experience that is not to be missed!
