On February 4, Engel & Völkers NYC was proud to sponsor an event that was a genuine treat for the senses. Bringing together art, food and music, Our Town’s Art of Food featured top NYC chefs creating dishes inspired by a curated selection of works on exhibition around them. Over the course of the evening at Sotheby’s auction house, more than 700 guests sampled dishes presented by 26 participating chefs, each one designed to complement a masterpiece on display nearby. How could small plates inspired by the works of Alexander Calder, Robert Rauschenberg, Jeff Koons and other greats not be dazzling and delicious?
Adding to the Art of Food’s genius were its hosts, celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian and his wife Margaret, and its purpose, supporting City Harvest. Our own Fisher Roberts Team joined us in sponsoring the evening and added another dimension to the festivities. For over three hours, Jennifer and Randi responded to an enthusiastic and engaged crowd, providing everything from real estate advice to favorite recipes. As the evening came to a close, our raffle winner claimed his fully stocked Engel & Völkers beach bag and stepped out of the stunning gallery space, inspired by a range of culinary tastes and artistic styles and eagerly anticipating summer.
