An ode to seasonality, locality and sustainable wine-growing

This dinner featured the talents of Chefs Flynn McGarry and Master sommelier Pascaline Lepeltier.
Our guests enjoyed a multi-course menu designed to promote local farming while showcasing eco-friendly foods and techniques. The organic wine selection is committed to educate on sustainable wine production.
Chef Flynn McGarry took his first steps in gastronomy at the age of 11. In addition to his undisputed talent, Flynn places sustainability at the heart of the experience he and his team offer the guests at Gem, the restaurant he opened in Manhattan's lower east side in 2018.
Pascaline Lepeltier, who’s originally from Loire Valley, is passionate about sustainable agriculture, hospitality, and organic, biodynamic, natural wines. She is a Master Sommelier & Managing partner at Racines NY. Amongst multiple prestigious awards, she won the titles of 'Meilleur Ouvrier de France' & 'Best sommelier de France' 2018.
