We are not making any breaking news today by saying that we are huge fans of Colicchio & Sons, you already know that. If you don’t, here are few reasons why.
Not only do they continuously raise the bar on the dining scene in NYC and are true leaders in the industry, they are a group of uber-talented chefs, managers, servers and staff who deeply care about what they do. How deeply? Just spend a few minutes talking to them and you will quickly see how they feel about each other and the man in charge, Tom Colicchio. This is a family – a restaurant family, that is intensely focused on our enjoyment and working together to achieve greatness. Collectively, they consistently deliver the kind of inspiring experiences that all restauranteurs should take a lesson from. Whether its a casual beer and burger in the Tap Room, an elegant dinner in the main dining room or one of the many charity events that they graciously participate in, Colicchio & Sons is focused on every detail and passionately delivers excellence.
Like any fraternal order or brotherhood, when one of their own is hurting or in pain, chefs come together to lend a hand. Such was the case with Chef Gerry Hayden of the North Fork Table & Inn who was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) a year and a half ago. ALS is a debilitating disease that affects the patients central nervous system. There is no known cure for the disease, however there have been a few breakthroughs. Top chef friends of Gerry came together on a warm Sunday evening in June at Tom Colicchio’s Colicchio & Sons in NYC to show support and offer their solidarity to one of their own. These chefs from around the country prepared delicious tastings for all of us in attendance. It was an honor and a privilege to be there for this worthy cause. Here are some of the pictures we took during the night. For more information on Hayden’s Heroes, please visit: www.giveforward.com/haydensheroes.
