FOOD AS HEAVEN - A Michael Green Experience

We all know Chinese food, but very few have experienced a Chinese Banquet. NYC's Chinatown is not only home to one of the largest Chinese populations in the US, it is also home to stunning food. There is a famous Chinese saying 民以食为天 which literally means: people regard food as heaven.  Be transported to culinary paradise with a classic Chinese banquet! These indulgent feasts are created to mark special life events. Served family style, these meals foster a true sense of sharing and community.  

Join Michael Green as we savor 10 curated courses of food paired with fantastic food friendly wines to accompany these varied dishes.
