Join chefs from Mario Batali’s restaurants at the Garden during one of only four al fresco Family Dinners--dining experiences for families in NYBG's Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden. Each dinner features a three-course family-style menu designed by one of Mario’s chefs. Explore "Mario Batali’s Kitchen Gardens," a robust and interactive space filled with beds of vegetables and herbs used at Mario’s restaurant kitchens; participate in hands-on gardening and craft activities; and then sit back and enjoy live cooking demonstrations by Mario’s top chefs in the outdoor Whole Foods Market Family Garden Kitchen featuring recipes with fresh, seasonal ingredients like those grown in "Mario Batali’s Kitchen Gardens." The entire family is sure to enjoy this special evening together. Programming is geared for kids 4-12.
