Eataly Guest Chef Series

Giving back to the city is as easy as making a reservation

Sure, the subway arrives on schedule only half the time and the winters have us questioning why we didn't choose California in the first place, but it's hard to imagine living (or eating) anywhere else except NYC.

The people behind Eataly feel the same way. Which is why for the next six months, the Flatiron food emporium's butcher shop-slash-restaurant, Manzo, is paying tribute to the Big Apple through a new guest chef collaboration. Each month, From New York to New York will have local culinary heroes, from Daniel Boulud to Atoboy's Junghyun Park, create signature dishes for the menu, with a portion of the proceeds going toward various NYC charities.

Marc Forgione, chef of swanky Midtown steakhouse American Cut, is kicking off November with a prime rib carpaccio, served with local squash and wild-foraged greens in honor of City Harvest. Head to Manzo tonight, November 8, for the opening party, where you'll get to chat with Forgione himself. Further, donations will be doubled by Eataly—all you have to do is show up for dinner.
