Madison Sq. Chefs 2017

This week nearly a thousand ravenous guests gathered in Madison Square Park to celebrate the innovative and diverse foods of the Madison Square area at this year’s Celebrate Mad. Sq. Chefs. An annual celebration that is not to be missed, this year’s event featured 31 chefs representing 34 restaurants, with 16 different drinks paired to the food offerings. Hot Jazz performed by The Brain Cloud provided a cool vibe for the evening.
