Dine Around Downtown: Cooking At Home Edition Returns With Three New Restaurants

The Alliance for Downtown New York, the nonprofit business improvement district for Lower Manhattan, continues its Dine Around Downtown: Cooking At Home Edition series featuring James Beard Award-winning chef and New York Times-bestselling author Rocco DiSpirito with three new episodes featuring Harry’s (Apr 8), Kesté Wall Street (Apr 22) and The Fulton (May 6).

Participants can register for the upcoming episodes at downtownny.com/dinearound.

The series, broadcast via Zoom raises money for food-security charities and provides viewers at home with exciting recipes. DiSpirito will once again present local Lower Manhattan chefs as they demonstrate easy-to-replicate dishes from their restaurants. All the events are free to join, but participants are encouraged to donate to a fund of the restaurant’s choice.

On April 8 at 4 p.m. ET, Harry’s Executive Chef Joseph Mallol will kick off Season 4 to show participants how to make their signature Beef Wellington with Truffle Sauce and Roasted Baby Carrots. The series will continue on April 22 at 4 p.m ET with Executive Chef Roberto Caporuscio of Kesté Wall Street and May 6 at 4 p.m. ET with Executive Chef Noah Poses of Jean-George Vongerichten’s The Fulton. Registration is required and limited. All registrants will receive digital copies of the recipes prior to the event.

Additionally, participants are encouraged to make the dishes themselves and post photos of their plates on Instagram, tagging #DineAroundAtHome and @downtownnyc for a chance to win a personal 30-minute cooking class with the featured chef. 

The series launched in June 2020 to temporarily replace the Alliance’s annual lunchtime food festival and has so far spotlighted ten local restaurants and directed donations to nine different food charities, engaging over 2,500 registrants. All past episodes of Dine Around Downtown: Cooking At Home Edition can be viewed on the Downtown Alliance YouTube Channel.
