June 6

Marea New York, NY

Jacques will be dining at Marea in New York City on Thursday, June 6, 2024! To help us gear up for the 90/90 Dinner Series starting in the fall, Marea Restaurant has generously pledged 25% of their proceeds from that night to the Jacques Pépin Foundation.

The talented chefs at this acclaimed Central Park South restaurant are preparing special Jacques-inspired dishes in addition to their incredible a la carte menu of Italian seafood.

This promises to be an unforgettable night and a delicious way to get ready for the official 90/90 launch in the fall. We hope you’ll make a reservation and join us to raise a glass to Jacques on June 6th!
