Atera, a Michelin-starred restaurant in New York’s TriBeCa neighborhood, is hosting a fundraising dinner on Sunday, August 11, that will benefit The Bocuse d’Or USA Foundation, according to a release.
In honor of Bocuse d’Or participating in the US for 15 years, guests can try a one-night-only menu of 15 courses from Chef Matthew Lightner. Lightner has worked at some of the most prestigious institutions in the world like Noma in Copenhagen and L’Auberge in California, and has also received nominations in 2010 and 2011 for Rising Star Chef by the James Beard Foundation.
The dinner starts at 7:30 p.m. and is a pricy $300 per person, and the tasting menu will aim to bring out the best of summer ingredients. Some of the items you can expect to see on the menu include beer foam macarons and sea urchin and carrots.
Non-profit Bocuse d’Or USA Foundation has been in existence since 2008, and is led by chefs Daniel Boulud, Thomas Keller, and Jerome Bocuse. It aims to train and support young American chefs who represent the United States in the Bocuse d’Or competition, which is held in France every two years.
