Chef Jeff and the full team complete their “sound check” for the big night.
The shipping gods were with us as all 18 boxes of food, wine and supplies (1,080 lbs. in total) made it safely to New York. Thanks to our friends at Sysco, we had full use of their kitchen in Jersey City to prep for Saturday night’s dinner. In spite of it being nearly 3,000 miles from the Space Needle kitchen and only 2 stories up instead of 50, we quickly made ourselves at home.
Now wrapped and ready, the team took a moment to reflect with Lady Liberty.
As a pregame meal and tip of the cap to the team, we enjoyed a fantastic meal together at Mario Batali’s Otto in the historic One Fifth Avenue building.
Now rested and prepared, the time has come for the Chef Team to welcome their guests and enjoy the moment!
