This year, we are pleased to welcome Andreas Grossbauer , first violinist of the world renowned Vienna Philharmonic, and his quartet to New York City for an evening that will delight all senses for the first-ever Philharmonic Taste.

Austria is a country rich in culture. Whether it is music, art, cuisine, or wine, each element is crafted with the utmost care and, for that, Vienna has earned a strong reputation of one of the classiest locations on earth. The Philharmonic Taste, hosted by Mr. Grossbauer and Chef Lidia Bastianich, on Monday, March 4, 2013 at 7pm, will transport New Yorkers to Austria.

Guests will be served a pristinely prepared, 7-course menu featuring the culinary stylings of Chef Basitianich at her Del Posto restaurant and the fine viniculture of Austria. Each course will be accompanied by a carefully-selected Austrian wine to be enjoyed while the quartet is playing; food will be served after each performance and the quartet will join the guests in dining.

This event is truly a one-of-a-kind experience and is a dream come true for any culture-enthusiast. Tickets are on sale now for $425 a head, all inclusive, through this website. Additional details are below. Prost!
