Michelin Foodie Weekend in New York

Foodies will have a new reason to hit New York this spring: Presented by Michelin Food & Travel, New York's most exclusive Michelin-starred event is hitting the City on April 7-10. Over one short weekend, Michelin Food & Travel will introduce foodies to the biggest names on New York's culinary scene as well as some talented up and comers.

The weekend kicks off on Thursday, April 7 with a Champagne and caviar tasting at Petrossian, the world's premier buyer and importer of Russian caviar. Guests will then retire to the ever-so-chic Surrey Hotel on Manhattan's Upper East Side, their home for the weekend's events.

On Friday morning, guests will begin the day sampling François Payard's French Easter Savouries and Pastries during a private shopping event at Vera Wang's Soho boutique. Soon after, foodies will move on to David Bouley's "culinary laboratory," where they will discover the secrets to his multi-Michelin-starred cuisine through an afternoon of hands-on cooking and tasting. On Friday evening, gourmets will enjoy a private dinner at Eric Ripert's three Michelin-starred restaurant, Le Bernardin, where they will indulge in a tasting menu expertly paired with wines chosen personally by Chef Ripert.

On Saturday, guests will hit the famous Union Square Farmer's Market with Dan Kluger, executive chef at Jean-Georges Vongerichten's new ABC Kitchen, before returning to the restaurant for a meal personally prepared by the chef using the freshest, local ingredients. Guests will spend the evening with James Beard award winner and Michelin-starred Chef Michael White, starting with drinks at the chic Raw Bar at Marea and followed by a feast at White's heralded Ai Fiori.

The weekend closes in style as Michelin Food & Travel tackles the popular New York tradition of Sunday brunch with an all-imported Italian spread at SD-26.

Pricing for this exclusive New York event begins at $5,940, including accommodations. To book this space-limited event, call (877) 304-2051. For additional information, visit www.michelinfoodandtravel.com.
