Fresh off the heels of their first ever MAD Monday in New York City, the MAD team has announced two upcoming fundraisers to help broaden their reach in the culinary world. On March 16th, MAD will host a cocktail reception at The Apartment by the Line, with drinks from Jim Meehan of PDT, food from Hot Bread Kitchen, and music from James Murphy and Cibo Matto. Tickets for the reception are available now for $200.
The second fundraising event on March 18th is undoubtedly the more exciting of the two, and will take the form of an intimate dinner at Eleven Madison Park. MAD founder René Redzepi will prepare a meal alongside curators David Chang of Momofuku, Alex Atala of D.O.M., Barbara Lynch of No. 9 Park, and Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park.
Desserts will be prepared by Eleven Madison Park’s pastry chef Angela Pinkerton and Christina Tosi of Milk Bar. Guests will also be able to enjoy wines curated by Jordan Salcito, and cocktails by Leo Robitschek of The NoMad and Julie Reiner of The Clover Club.
The evening will include silent auctions hosted by Padma Lakshmi and Lydia Fenet, and music from the No BS Brass Band. Tickets for the dinner start at $1500.
