GRAND GOURMET 2023 has returned!  New York is back and as a sports announcer would say: "Let's get ready to rumble!"  If you feel a rumbly in your tumbly like Pooh Bear, you should have been at Grand Central Partnerships' Grand Gourmet, the Flavor of Midtown.  Though many this week would vote Patrick Kane (welcome him to New York if you see him!!! Obviously #88 NYR!!!)  who will undoubtedly improve the last quarter of the season, off the ice Mayor Adams leads the five boroughs and he looked delighted with the signature Seafood Ceviche of Ammos Estiatorio by Executive Chef Bruno Marino, a Marine, previously highlighted in Peachy's Picks.  

Ammos Estiatorio Owner and Grand Central Partnership Board Member Dimitris Nakos shares exclusively with Whom You Know readers, "As a leading culinary destination in Midtown Manhattan, Ammos Estiatorio could not be more thrilled to participate in such a worthy cause and give back to our valued community.  We are honored to be included in the brilliant comeback of Grand Gourmet and it was our privilege to showcase our Ceviche among such a culinarily-motivated crowd including Mayor Adams with the legendary atmosphere of Cipriani.  We welcomed so many new faces at our Ammos spot and we look forward to seeing all of these new faces again soon at our 52 Vanderbilt location, directly west of Grand Central Terminal."

Grand Central Partnership shares:

Last Thursday, we brought back our in-person Grand Gourmet – The Flavor of Midtown® event for the first time since 2020. The event showcased 25 of Midtown East's finest restaurants, bars, lounges, and shops. It also drew hundreds of people, including elected officials, business and community leaders, neighborhood stakeholders, local residents, and foodies from all over the city. After the event, we partnered with City Harvest to rescue over 200 pounds of food, which was delivered to Unity Faith Outreach, a food pantry in Brooklyn.
To date, Grand Gourmet has raised over $1 million for homeless services programs in Midtown East.

Thank you to all our sponsors, participants, and event partners that helped make it a truly unforgettable evening!
