Floyd Cardoz To Host Young Scientist Foundation Gala Dinner

On Monday, March 24, North End Grill's executive chef Floyd Cardoz will host a charity gala at the Ritz Carlton to benefit the Young Scientist Foundation, in collaboration with a team of top New York City chefs. 

The Young Scientist Foundation helps students pursue their interest in science, and even offers young researchers the chance to contribute to existing biomedical knowledge, particularly in the fields of cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Chef Cardoz will be joined by chefs Michael Anthony of Gramercy Tavern, Marc Forgione of Restaurant Marc Forgione, Francois Paynard of Payard Patisserie, Ben Pollinger of Oceana, and Bill Telepan of Telepan. Each chef will prepare a special dish for the detailed menu, which includes Creekstone Farms steak tartare from Marc Forgione, seared diver scallops from Bill Telepan, and roasted and braised lamb from Michael Anthony.

If you'd like to join in on this special event, tickets start at $500 per person and are available through the Young Scientist Foundation.
