On October 22, the good people that run Chelsea's elevated park The High Line will (with Eater as a media sponsor) attempt something they've never done before: They will host a giant one-pot soup feast for hundreds of people.
Here's how it works. There will be two 45 minute seatings—one at 1 PM and one at 1:45—and they prefer people come in groups of four. The $5 cost of entry gets visitors a big bowl of farro soup with spicy olive oil (created by Alice Waters-trained chef Mona Talbott), a hunk of bread, and a seat at the giant table for the first ever communal meal on the High Line. Local wines, beer, and apple cider will be available for purchase separately. Tickets can be purchased here or on the day of the event.
