Sotheby’s on the Upper East Side hosted an evening of fun, food, and fabulous art for their second annual Our Town’s Art of Food, presented by New York-Presbyterian Hospital. The evening was hosted by none other than Geoffrey and Margaret Zakarian. Geoffrey Zakarian’s famed restaurants from The Lambs Club to The National in both NYC and Greenwich have made him one of the city’s most recognizable celebrity chefs.
Art and food lovers alike were treated to tastings prepared by over twenty of the Upper East Side’s most celebrated chefs while they enjoyed the beautiful space filled with artwork and fun entertainment.
“There are so many iconic culinary images that stem from great masterpieces masterpieces,” says co-host Geoffrey Zakarian. “From pop art soup cans to impressionist and renaissance fruit still lifes, food can never seem to evade the visual reality of artists. It is impossibly intertwined and in reverse as well.”
