Looking to donate your hard-earned dollars to something worthwhile? Consider the 10th Annual New York Taste, a benefit for City Harvest, on Monday, November 3, at Skylight (map). Tickets are $215 (VIP, which gets you in an hour early) or $150 (General Admission, entry at 7 p.m.)
Instead of throwing down a small fortune at some of the area's most popular restaurants, you can taste most of them for near the price of one meal; it's kind of a bargain when you consider the caliber of this food and that a portion of your entry cost goes to City Harvest. The night will feature tastings from Blue Hill, Dell'Anima, Insieme, Le Bernardin, Ouest, West Branch, Telepan, and The Spotted Pig, among others. Chefs Tom Colicchio, April Bloomfield, Dan Barber, Morimoto, and Alex Guarnaschelli will be on hand for demos.
