Dine Around Downtown

TheDine Around Downtown: Cooking At Home Edition” series connects audiences and chefs to support local restaurants from the comfort of your home. 

Launched during the height of the pandemic and hosted by James Beard Award-winning chef and author Rocco DiSpirito, the series features chefs from Lower Manhattan restaurants to cook up signature recipes and share tips for crafting everything from complex gastronomic delights to go-to comfort foods.

The series is FREE, and all donations go directly to a food-security charity of the restaurant’s choice. And if your inner chef is calling you, whip up your best version of a featured recipe and post a picture of your plate to Instagram with #DineAroundAtHome and tag @DowntownNYC to enter to win a 30-minute private virtual cooking class with the chef!
