Enjoy Taste like a Grade-A foodie with Food Network's Chopped winner Chef Raffaele Ronca:

At the Gourmet Level, enjoy early access at the VIP Hour from 6:30-7:30 p.m., listing in event program, exclusive bar and a special tasting from Chef Raffaele Ronca's Ristorante Rafele.

Born and raised in Naples, Italy, Raffaele Ronca comes from a family of butchers and fishermen and has had a passion for food all his life. With his family also in the restaurant business, food and cooking was not only an integral part of his Italian culture, it is in his blood. 

Working in his Uncle's restaurant in Naples and helping his Mother make fresh pasta daily, Raffaele developed a lifelong passion for food. Immigrating to America at the age of 21, he worked steadily at some of New York's most authentic Italian restaurants including as Executive Chef at Palma, Chef du Cuisine at Bellavitae, and Manager of Food and Wine at Café Torino. 

A few years ago, Raffaele and Romeo Palmisano, an old friend from Naples, began discussing opening their own restaurant that would feature their beloved Naples' cuisine. Working together, perfecting each detail which includes also the weekly flower arrangements - they created Ristorante Rafele.

We're adding restaurants by the day for Taste 2018.

From exclusive tickets to sold out shows to one-of-a-kind dinning experiences, the Taste of Greenwich House Silent Auction is a melting pot of exciting goods and experiences befitting of any New Yorker in the know. Browse more of the lots up for auction at Taste 2017 and learn how to donate an item to Taste 2018.
