The Arthur Ross Terrace at the American Museum of Natural History will be transformed into an extraordinary outdoor dining room for a four-course sit-down dinner–served family-style at one long, communal table under the stars–featuring best-quality local food prepared by the Upper West Side’s most brilliant chefs, all of whom are donating their time and talent for the sure-to-be-spectacular Landmark Feast.

In addition, a pre-dinner walk-around of cocktails and tastings will be offered by as many as 20 of the neighborhood’s top restaurants.

All this is being orchestrated by Outstanding in the Field, an international leader in the farm-to-table movement, in addition to Landmark West!, Friends of Roosevelt Park and the American Museum of Natural History.

All proceeds  from Landmark Feast support  Friends of Roosevelt Park, the only group dedicated to maintaining and beautifying the green oasis surrounding the Museum of Natural History for the enjoyment of West Siders and four million annual visitors to the area and  LANDMARK WEST!, the grassroots organization responsible for preserving the Upper West Side’s historic character and livability for the past 25 years.

Advance tickets for the Landmark Feast begin at $500 including the cocktails & tasting (4:00p to 6:00p) as well as the sit-down dinner (6:00p to 9:00p). General tickets ($250 for the dinner plus cocktails & tasting, $100 for cocktails & tasting only) will go on sale this summer, subject to availability.
