Are Your Tastebuds Ready?

It's time for the 2012 Taste of Greenwich House!

This year marks 10 years of Taste, and  we've got lots in store to make sure it's the most memorable yet. Each year, our participating restaurants are among the finest in New York, and this year is certainly no exception. We look forward to welcoming Featured Chefs that will join us that night. An expanded VIP offering and additional special guests are among some of the treats to wow you throughout the event. Once again we'll have a silent auction with a variety of fantastic prizes, ranging from private dining experiences to exclusive get-away vacations. Tickets are no longer available online. Tickets will be available at the door; General Admission: $160, VIP: $250

The VIP Experience

New this year, our VIP Gourmet guests will enjoy access to a private VIP lounge where Taste Sommelier Bruce Sanderson, senior editor and tasting director for Wine Spectator, will offer his expertise on champagne while sampling out Nicolas Feuillatte. To pair with this exceptional champagne, this year’s VIP Chef Joey Campanaro will serve a dish that highlights the bold, rich flavors that his restaurant, The Little Owl, is renowned for.

All VIP guests will be granted exclusive access to the restaurants from 6:30-7:30 pm. During this time, enjoy the first tastes from each of the participating restaurants and the opportunity to meet and talk to the chefs about their dishes. VIPs will also leave with a high-end gift bag at the end of the night. 

About Joey Campanaro

Joey’s devotion to the kitchen has won the hearts of New York diners at his widely popular restaurant The Little Owl as well as multiple other ventures, including his catering company Blackfoot Consulting, private events at The Little Owl, The Venue and as partner to Chef Mikey Price at Market Table. Joey cooks the food he loves, focusing on the freshest seasonal ingredients combined with the bold flavors of the Mediterranean and a few tricks he learned from his grandmother.

About Bruce Sanderson

Bruce Sanderson joined Wine Spectator in 1993 and was promoted to tasting director in 1995. In 1999, he became a senior editor. Born in Canada, he studied urban geography at the University of Waterloo, then earned a master’s degree from Queen’s University. Sanderson’s career as a model and actor sent him to Germany, where he first became passionate about wine. He entered the wine industry after moving to New York in 1990, gaining experience at specialty retailer Burgundy Wine Company and working as sommelier at Windows on the World. Under his direction, Wine Spectator’s tasting department organizes the tastings of more than 16,000 wines each year in New York, California and Europe, and maintains the wine ratings, restaurant awards and commercial auction databases for the magazine. Sanderson’s tasting responsibilities include the wines of Burgundy, Piedmont and Tuscany.
