Join JBF Greens for an in-person holiday celebration at Contento, in the heart of NYC’s East Harlem. Dinner will be an intimate indoor gathering with safety regulations strictly enforced as mandated by local governance.

Chef Oscar Lorenzzi will curate an ambitious four-course menu that pays homage to his Peruvian roots as well as to the immigrant community that has made New York what it is today. Dinner will also include sparkling wine from
J Vineyards & Winery.

*70% of your ticket price will go directly to the host restaurant while 30% will go towards the Foundation’s programs, including our Open For Good campaign to support independent restaurants.

Maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our guests, chefs, and entire restaurant team to experience our events is a top priority. The James Beard Foundation will adhere to city, state and/or federal regulations along with the policy of our host restaurants, which may include: wearing masks when not at your table, maintaining 3-feet of distance away from guests, or providing proof of vaccination.
