Member Price: $95 Public Price: $105 Check back soon for tickets.

Join JBF Greens for a pizza party at Mel’s in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.  
Aptly named for executive chef/partner Melissa Rodriguez, Mel’s is the first restaurant to open at the soaring 85 Tenth Avenue space that will encompass three new concepts: Mel’s, Al Coro, and Discolo. 

A fine dining veteran, chef Melissa will curate a casual, yet sophisticated menu, showcasing the restaurant’s centerpiece: wood-oven pizza. The evening will also feature sparkling and still wines from J Vineyards & Winery.

*70% of your ticket price will go directly to the host chef to support their business while 30% will go towards the Foundation’s national programming that is rooted in advocacy, racial equity, sustainability, and women’s leadership for the culinary industry. 

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. Ticket buyers attending the Greens event will be alerted of the final policy in an email at least two (2) business days prior to the event date. Thank you for your continued understanding and compliance with these measures for your safety and the safety of those around you. 

All reservations must be made in advance. Should the event(s) be cancelled due to any unforeseen circumstances, including COVID-19, The James Beard Foundation will offer a range of options, including ticket exchanges, option to donate tickets or a full refund.
