DAY 2: 10-Course Seasonal American Feast

The past few events have been all about showcasing brand new eateries that we'd heard great things about. For this event, however, we're heading to a well-established restaurant that has nothing to prove. The Finch, which opened a few years back, is one of only a small handful of Brooklyn-based restaurants that received a Michelin Star this year (and every year since they opened!). This place is all about perfectly blending modern and traditional; from the space, which is a beautifully renovated 120-yr-old brownstone, to the food which is loosely classified as "seasonal American". The incredible success of this restaurant is not in the least bit surprising when you consider Chef/Owner Gabe McMackin's resume: Blue Hill at Stone Barns, and Roberta's, and Gramercy Tavern, oh my! We're taking over the back room of the restaurant for this one and and Chef McMackin will, of course, be coming out of the kitchen throughout the evening to introduce the courses and sharing stories.
