Once you hit those gorgeous summer days, there’s nothing better to indulge in than lobster — you know it, we know it, and the celebs sure as heck do as well. That was made clear on Saturday, May 10, when some of Hollywood’s hottest starlets hit NYC hotspot Capitale for the first annual “Lobster de Mayo” celebration.
Hosted by Food Network’s Katie Lee and lobster purveyors Homarus, the evening hosted 19 of Manhattan’s finest restaurants and their chefs, who each put together a lobster tasting menu of Mexican-inspired dishes for the evening. Stars like Chrissy Teigen and Real Housewives of New York star Aviva Drescher sampled the menus and sipped on Patron Tequila during the fun evening, which was to benefit food rescue organization City Harvest.
Not hungry yet? How about if we list some of the delish dishes served to the distinguished guests, like macaroni and lobster cream, lobster tacos, and lobster salad. Yea, we thought so.
Among the participating restaurants were: ABC Kitchen, Gramercy Tavern, Jean Georges, Betony, Marea, Catch, The Sea Grill, The Wayfarer, Lavo, Beauty & Essex, Monarch, Tao Downtown & Uptown, Arlington Club, and Marc Fargione.
We don’t know how Chrissy and Aviva keep those model figures with events like these!
