11th Annual Taste of Greenwich House

As chefs sharpened their knives and bakers pulled out their finest whisk, the aromas of Greenwich House’s 11th Annual Taste of Greenwich House filled the air.  On Monday, March 11, 2013, some of New York City’s finest restaurants and chefs joined Greenwich House, its supporters, friends and neighbors for the tasting event to kick off the this year’s benefit season. 

A fundraiser initially created for Greenwich House’s Children’s Safety Project, in 2003, Taste has evolved in its range and outreach. This year, event guests helped Greenwich House reach its goal of raising over $225,000 to support its ten vital social service and arts programs, including treatment for victims of child abuse, medical care for home-bound seniors, afterschool programs for urban youth, senior wellness programs, and adults struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.

This year, Chef Anita Lo, Owner and Executive Chef of Annisa and Greenwich House neighbor, spearheaded the VIP Hour, signing copies of her book Cooking Without Borders, and sampling Annisa’s popular ‘Salad of Fire,’ a roasted eggplant with Turkish chili in yogurt water. Other tasty Greenwich House neighbors and Village restaurants included, the little owl, sampling their ‘Ricotta Cavatelli,’ a tomato broth, infused with bacon and fava beans; Market Table and its ‘Diver Scallop Crudo,’ a delicious scallop filled with grapefruit, fresh hearts of palm, pomegranate, and basil; and Gotham Bar and Grill’s ‘Vanilla Semifreddo,’ a fruity dessert drizzled with mango sauce and a coconut crunch at the bottom.

 “These restaurants consistently bring their A game to the event,” notes Greenwich House Executive Director, Roy Leavitt.  “With their support, we are helping improve services in the Village and beyond, particularly for the most vulnerable among us, from young children to senior citizens. Their commitment to this partnership makes our work even more worthwhile.”

Between the exquisite food, music, silent auction, and meaningful takeaway conversations with Greenwich House program directors, Taste of Greenwich House has grown into one of the most memorable tasting events where each guest mingled and ate while making a contribution to the community.
