One Night Only: NYC's Best Guest-Chef SeriesBy Kirsten Stamn | January 14, 2014 By Kirsten Stamn | January 14, 2014
How can you try the food of the world's greatest chefs without leaving New York City? Easy: just sign up for one of the many new one-off, chef-collaboration projects that are popping up faster than we can count them. Two basic types of programs dominate in the city: the guest-chef-centric models like City Grit or the James Beard House, where the cast of characters changes constantly; the second type is at already-beloved restaurants like Empellón and Aldea, where visiting chefs bring new depth and flavors to some of NYC's top tables. Here, our favorite places to get a truly special one-of-a-kind meal.
