September is the month of epic harvests. We spend the summer counting the days until our favorite crops are in season: from crisp, flavorful greens to super-sweet, vine-ripened tomatoes, pungent peppers, tangy ground cherries, creamy eggplant, fragrant basils the list goes on.
When the food is this fresh and the harvest this diverse, who needs meat!? Not us, nor any of the five amazing chefs we've enlisted, each of whom will put their unique spin on our rooftop crops.
Dinner will start with a cocktail hour during which guests can sip on a summery garden-to-glass cocktail and snack on pickled veggies while watching the sun set over our stunning Manhattan skyline view. We'll then move on to a family-style, four-course dinner served down the length of a gorgeous banquet table.
In the spirit of the diversity of September's harvest, and as a nod to an old family tradition, we ask that everyone bring their own plate! Harvest is all about sharing with community and your plates will add color and a bit of your personality to our table, so dig deep into those cabinets and grab your favorite dish.
Here's to summer, let's eat and enjoy!!
