Last night, 400 guests toasted our very own Tim and Nina Zagat as they accepted Relais & Chateaux’s first-annual Art de Vivre Award at the Dîner des Grand Chefs at Gotham Hall. The honor, created exclusively for the dinner, rewards “many years of relentless work and commitment of Tim and Nina for the benefit of the culinary arts and restaurant industry,” said Chairman of the Board Jaume Tàpies. We second that! In his acceptance speech, Tim Zagat gave the dinner a sold ‘30’ rating, calling the feast “perfection” and the “most impressive collection of chefs since Escoffier ate home alone.” The black-tie gala featured 45 chefs from 34 countries, including New York’s own Daniel Boulud, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Michael White and Mark Ladner. Congrats to Tim and Nina!
