"Strawberry Shortcake" by Eleven Madison Park

If you love food and love Madison Square Park, the Celebrate Flatiron Chefs food event hosted by the Madison Square Park Conservancy in the park is absolutely one of the best local events of the year. You get to sample food from 27 local restaurants (see the list below) and all the money goes to support Madison Square Park upkeep and programs. It’s $175 per ticket but we have been told $140 is tax deductible. Also NOTE, this event is very popular and I believe it typically sells out! Get tickets at BEFORE MONDAY AT 3PM when online sales end.

Take a look at our food photos from the event last year to see how amazing the food looks:
