Join Slow Food NYC and Rouge Tomate Chelsea for an intimate Summer Solstice farm-to-table dinner highlighting our shared passion for fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.
Each ticket includes a five course meal with wine pairings, during which guests will interact with the purveyors providing the dinner ingredients. Purveyors include Smallhold Minifarms, Upstate Farms, Local Bushel, and Hudson Valley Harvest. This is a delicious opportunity to learn more about the new paradigm of farm to table that's building a strong, regional food economy.

radish, avocado, lemongrass, chilled rhubarb broth
