Go ahead, try to eat just one! There are some classic, Cuban dishes whose popularity transcends culture and geography, then there are those that haven't quite "crossed over" — enter the Cuban croqueta! Whether from a lunch counter, a grocery store, a traditional bakery ventanita or elsewhere, these delicious fried little ovals with smooth melt-in-your-mouth centers are positively addictive. Sprawling across Palm Court, the haute new addition to the burgeoning Design District, join superchef Jean-Georges Vongerichten as he hosts this croqueta celebration. Local food authority Burger Beast will help curate an elite group of local chefs who will dish out their tastiest variations of the croqueta while you spend the night dancing, savoring and sipping on Champagne Henriot.
