Resto's Chef Bobby Hellen roasting a pig all day in 100° heat. He's a sweetheart and that wouldn't do. And you really want some good eats outdoors, don't you.
Madison Square Park Conservancy. Trust that if it wasn't for them, Shake Shack wouldn't be where it is today, and the people working at Credit Suisse and in the Flatiron Building would be very sad. One of the Conservancy's main fundraisers is the Celebrate Flatiron Chefs dinner, which this year includes food from craftbar, Eleven Madison Park, Cabrito, Fatty 'Cue, Tabla, Allegretti, a sneak peek at Eataly, and a lot more-the menu is ah-mazing making this so well worth it. Tickets are a bit pricey at $160 until 3pm this Friday, and $260 for VIP, but it's all tax deductible! If there are any left after Friday, they'll be $200 at the door for 6:30 entry. You can buy your tickets here!
