Tony and Marisa May, the father and daughter duo behind SD26, are celebrating the restaurant’s fifth anniversary with an affair to remember.
The party on Jan. 20 will benefit the James Beard Foundation ($95 all-inclusive, $75 for James Beard Foundation members). A new scholarship, the Tony May Scholarship for Italian Culinary Studies, will be launched.
The menu will reflect SD26’s first years in business, with housemade porchetta, roasted suckling pig, and braised beef cheeks “Alla Vaccinara,” complemented by Italian wines. Pizza-making tutorials will be offered in the kitchen all evening.
