March 15th @ Grass: Top Chef Micah Edelstein Reinvents McDonald's Menu for an Evening Full of Hearts and Stars

Get ready for an extra Special Algonquin Group Dinner on March 15th. Quite a few of the Algonquin’ers are either on the host committee or attending Hearts and Stars Gala on March 20 to benefit the Ronald McDonald House where Grass’s chef Micah will be auctioned off. And so Grass’s award winning South African-born Chef Micah Edelstein, of Bravo TV's TOP CHEF, has created a custom menu for the Algonquin occasion serving up her spin on McDonald’s legendary menu. Come join us as we walk down the memory lane of our childhood into Ronald McDonald’s magical land. It will be a fun Algonquin evening full of fun, friends, food and a happy meal for adults with adult beverages too….

This event kicks off the week leading up to the Hearts and Stars Gala on Saturday, March 20th to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of South Florida. Please come, eat, drink and be merry and learn how we can make a difference in our community. At Monday’s dinner, you will have an opportunity to purchase tickets to the Gala, hosted by The Little Light House Foundation and the Ronald McDonald House of South Florida where you can bid on the chance to win a private cooking class with Micah or golf lessons with Lawrence Taylor and many other fun prizes.
