36th Annual Chefs’ Tribute

For over 35 years, Chefs' Tribute to Citymeals has rallied our culinary world friends for a lavish tasting event in support of homebound elderly New Yorkers. 

Join us for Chefs' Tribute, once again, on June 12th at Cipriani South Street. This year's theme – Family Affair – celebrates the relationships at the heart of our shared love of food and cooking.

Chefs Daniel Boulud, Larry & Marc Forgione, Alex Guarnaschelli, Mawa McQueen, Charlie Palmer and dozens more will showcase their signature dishes and flavors from around the world. Guests will enjoy craft cocktails from some of the city's leading bartenders and an abundance of craft beers and fine wines. A live band keeps the dance floor packed late into the evening.
