Latke Festival

Ever wonder how your favorite NYC chef would make their latkes unique? Come to the Metropolitan Pavilion on Monday, December 2 at 6:30pm for a night of interpretative renditions of this timeless Hanukkah favorite. I am thrilled to be a judge this year. After all, you don't have to be Jewish to love latkes!

Tickets are available here.

Please note, tickets will not be sold on site. The evening's proceeds benefit The Sylvia Center.

Participating restaurants:
