In New York, four downtown chefs gathered at Aldea to host a five-course dinner to kick off their efforts. Chef/owner George Mendes, Marco Canora (Hearth and Terroir), Seamus Mullen (Tertulia) and Andrew Carmellini (Locanda Verde and The Dutch), each contributed a dish with Aldea's Shelly Acuna preparing dessert. All proceeds from the dinner went toward local communities in need, with this particular dinner benefiting Red Hook.
