New York, NY 10012
Our monthly dinner series, which bring together a small group for dinner with two TAP-NY board members, have been one of our most popular events since their inception.
Good food always brings people together, and during the first week of August, and to coincide with NYC Restaurant Week, we’ll be doing five dinners with different board members in a row! Get to know the board members of TAP and make new friends during these more intimate dinners – we’ve snagged seats at tables for some of the more exclusive restaurants in the New York scene. Check out the descriptions below and sign up for the one that suits your fancy.
Each of the dinners start at 7:30 PM. Restaurant Week is a prie-fixe menu for $38 plus tax and tip. Please bring cash for easy bill-splitting. Because of the nature of Restaurant Week, please sign up for only one dinner. If for any reason you can no longer make the reservation, please let us know at least 48 hours in advance. If you’re open to other dates, let us know and we’ll try and make sure you get placed in a dinner.
