This year you can attend the StarChefs New York Rising Stars Awards Gala on Thursday, April 11, from 8pm to 10:30pm at The Liberty Theater, with a VIP reception beginning at 6:45pm. The walk-around tasting gala will give diners the opportunity to experience 24 of New York’s top restaurants, including more than a few DessertBuzz Favorites, including Ashley Brause from DB Bistro Moderne and Zack Golper from Bien Cuit.  The evening includes beverage pairings and cocktails by the winning sommeliers and mixologists, in one location, for one night only!  A complete list of the chefs and ticket info is below.

Elizabeth Falkner

The evening will be hosted by Chef Elizabeth Falkner of Brooklyn’s Krescendo.

“The young talent in Brooklyn is incredible!” said Editor-in-Chief Antoinette Bruno. “The borough is making it affordable for young chefs to express themselves for the first time in New York—and gain the independence chefs in other markets have enjoyed for years.”

Buy your tickets soon as this will certainly sell out!

Tickets are $125 per person; VIP tickets are $175, which includes the awards ceremony and private reception with sparkling wine and Petrossian caviar, beginning at 6:45pm. Tickets can be purchased at A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to Careers through Culinary Arts Program, a nonprofit that works to advance the youth of America’s public schools through one of the few merit-based fields in the country: the restaurant industry.
