|Cuban Sandwich at Havana Central|
City Harvest is also bringing the flavors of a different area to New York, but this time it's New Orleans rather than Cuba. The charity has enlisted top chefs like John Stage of Dinosaur BBQ and Joey Campanaro of The Little Owl to whip up some classic dishes from The Big Easy for their Mardi Gras-themed fundraiser on February 7 dubbed The Big Easy in The Big Apple. The shindig will also feature tunes from the Rebirth Brass Band, who got their start playing the streets of the French Quarter. It being on the actual Fat Tuesday, we expect beads to be somehow involved, but we're sure they'll keep it tasteful. You can learn more about City Harvest here.
