Give Back, Maybe Get Free Fancy Meals


Can’t make, or afford, tomorrow’s chef’s tasting and book launch for Jan Bartelsman’s Dining in New York benefiting Citymeals-on-Wheels? Even if you’re not attending, you can still buy raffle tickets to support the charity, and perhaps win a foodie prize for yourself. Yes, this is precisely what Obama was talking about when he was paraphrasing JFK.

Okay, maybe not quite, but it is for a good cause. Go here to purchase tickets until noon tomorrow by emailing or faxing in your order form. The full list of the raffle prizes, which include meals at Nobu and Bouley, is after the jump.

Dinner for six with Krug and Romanee Conti at Tocqueville
Tasting Menu for two at Bouley
Dinner for two, including gratuity, at Robuchon
Lunch for four at Nobu
Lunch for four with wine at Café Boulud
Gift Certificate for $275 to Gramercy Tavern
Lunch + cookbook from Chanterelle
Dinner for two with wine at Aureole
Dinner for two at Scalini Fedeli
Tasting Menu for 2 with wine at Devi
Signed cookbook from Le Bernardin

*Note, all prizes except for the Tocqueville dinner will be packaged together and awarded as such.

*UPDATE* A publicist informs us that the Toqueville dinner will now be part of a silent auction, not the raffle.
