Alongside local restaurateurs and design experts, more than 100 guests came together Thursday evening at Danny Meyer's pizza place Marta inside The Redbury Hotel to enjoy a sprawling rooftop locale for the third annual Taste of Design event. Proceeds from the event benefitted the Kip’s Bay Boys & Girls Club, a non-profit that provides resources for the Bronx community at large and serves more than 10,000 children each year.

Top designers and restaurant teams joined forces to create stations that showcased the food. Chefs represented at the event included Billy Durney of Hometown Bar-B-Que, Eduard Frauneder of Edi and the Wolf, Melissa Weller of Sadelle’s and Daniel Eddy of Rebelle, Nick Anderer of Marta, and Jessi Singh of Babu Ji. They were paired with designers Anna Burke, Meghan McNeer, Serena Merriman Alvarado, Bennett Leifer, Starett Zenko, and Patrick Janelle. A big thanks also to Marta for hosting, partner Domino, and sponsors Deep Eddy Vodka, Pernod Ricard, Truvée Wines, and Ace Cider.
