Annual Black Tie Gala at Crown Shy

Please join event chairs, Arnie and Sherrie Reiter for our annual black tie gala at Michelin-starred restaurants, Crown Shy and sister venue, SAGA.  Both are housed in the same historic downtown skyscraper, the Art Deco masterpiece at 70 Pine Street. 

Our evening will begin with champagne and hors d'oeuvres at Overstory, SAGA’s renowned cocktail bar, for an indoor/outdoor reception.  Situated on the 64th floor, Overstory is known for its magnificent wraparound terrace with uninterrupted views of the city below.  Next we will take the elevators down to Crown Shy’s private dining space on the first floor where we will enjoy a multi-course meal paired with specially selected wines matured in the Society cellar.  The first solo project of Executive Chef James Kent, the food at Crown Shy is rooted in European technique but draws inspiration from around the world and the diverse cuisine found in New York City. The event will also feature a special tribute honoring long standing members of the NYWFS.
