Pitting the East Coast's most notable chefs against those from the West, the upcoming food fight at MoMA PS1 sees NYC battle San Francisco in an intense culinary battle dubbed Le Grand Fooding.

Guests will get to judge the food of celebrity chefs like Momofuku's David Chang and Blue Hill Farms' Dan Barber against Daniel Patterson of Coi and Laurence Jossel of Nopa, while sipping on fizzy beverages from sponsors Veuve Clicquot and San Pellegrino.

In addition to all the food, from Pickle Salad New Yorkese from the maestros at Torrisi and Wood-grilled port ribeye from Nopa, the evening promises a host of other events too, like a Belvedere vodka pairing with "mystery moments and special treats" in collaboration with Dar Hi Eco House and Spa (designer Matali Crasset's first architectural project) for a select few.
