A denim-sporting Daniel Boulud, Michelin-multi-starred French chef Michel Troisgos, and Eleven Madison’s Daniel Humm will collaborate on a four-course menu for the casual Citymeals-on-Wheels benefit “Black Truffles, Blue Jeans, Burgundy & Blues” at Daniel on Sunday, March 8. If the shortlist of extraordinary dishes — from Flocons de Chataignes aux Briseurs de Truffe Noir (chestnuts shaved over truffle) to Nova Scotia lobster — doesn’t justify the $1,000 seat price (or $25,000 for a ten top and access to better wines), keep in mind that 100 percent of what you pay goes to charity. Translation: tax deduction! To book: call Heather Gere at 212-687-1290 or email heather@citymeals.org. See the full menu with wines after the jump.
