D’Artagnan kicked-off May with a gleeful, resonant QUACK as we celebrated our sixth ever Duckathlon!
The Duckathlon is our annual, industry-only event where Teams of Chefs from some of the area’s best restaurants compete for prizes, trophies and gastronomical glory in an obstacle course of culinary challenges. For one day we completely take over New York City’s Meatpacking District and with the help of area shops, restaurants and bars, plus our amazing sponsors, we let chefs run wild.
Why you ask? Because it’s ducking fun! And it’s a great way for our chef friends to take a well-deserved afternoon away from the kitchen and blow off some steam.
Once again, Team Annisa took home the gold trophy. Team Cercle Rouge was a close second and Le Bernardin were third place champs, rounding out the top tier winners. Every team one at least one challenge and fun was had by all.
Here are some more highlights from the day!
