Forbes Lifestyle 4 days ago

NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 16: A display of Smoked Turkey Sliders at Wingin' It hosted by Jaymee Sire at Hill Country Brooklyn on October 16, 2016 in New York City.

Fall is here, and that means food and wine festivals are raging across the country. The king of these events is the New York City Wine & Food Festival, taking place right now and through the weekend.

It's the 10th anniversary of the festival, and there are more events than ever. These are held in the city's most interesting venues and hosted by people in the industry you want to meet.  For example, there is a down-home fried chicken dinner hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, an intimate dinner spotlighting the city's best female chefs, a fancy dim sum brunch in Chinatown, and a donut making masterclass. There are late night parties, early morning panels, family-events, barbecues, grand tastings, and more.

With all these choices navigating the festival can be daunting. So we asked some of New York City's best chefs where and what they will be eating and drinking this weekend. Follow their lead!

What are you looking forward to eating + doing at the NYCWFF?

Chef Missy Robbins, Head Chef & Owner, Lilia

Where to find her:

  • Dinner with Missy Robbins and Bruce Kalman part of the Bank of America Dinner Series presented by The Wall Street Journal

What are you looking forward to eating + doing at the NYCWFF?

  • I really love cooking at the private dinners. They’re more intimate than some of the other events. I get to interact with guests, cook with friends (and amazing chefs), and it’s almost like being in my restaurant, Lilia. This Friday, I’ll be in the kitchen with Bruce Kalman over at Spring Studios. We’ve created a pasta tasting menu, complete with wine pairings.
