Join JBF Greens for an in-person celebration of our local restaurant community at LittleMad, in NYC’s NoMad neighborhood. Dinner will be an intimate indoor gathering with safety regulations strictly enforced as mandated by local governance.

Chefs Sol Han and Jonathan Culbert will offer an exciting three-course menu that redefines a new American cuisine—one that’s anchored in French techniques while drawing from chef Han’s heritage as a Korean American. Dinner will also include sparkling and still wine pairings 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. 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.
