The Food

Nothing brings a community together like good food - and with unlimited tastings and open bars from up to 50 of the most acclaimed and diverse restaurants in NYC, giving back through TLES tastes as good as it feels.

Get Involved

TLES brings everyone to the table - proceeds connect 10,000 New Yorkers with Grand St. Settlement's vital human services and programming. The Settlement House model believes that everyone has the power to help our neighbors, enriching our own lives in the process of building our community. Join us, and help bring everyone to the table.

A Picture of Our Results

Proceeds from TLES directly support Grand St. Settlement's comprehensive lifecycle of programs that begin in infancy and serve our community through advanced age. Funds from this year's TLES will go toward launching new nutrition and healthy, active living initiatives, spark new STEM-learning opportunities and work towards new resource development to help members of the community build not only a life, but a future.

Tasting Preview

This exclusive, hour-long preview of all the restaurants opens the event early for those who wish to rub elbows with our chefs and be the first to dig in. Space is limited and this hour is always a smashing success - get your tickets early!

Buy Tickets

Get a date, round up your friends, invite your colleagues or impress your clients - and join us at TLES! Tickets are sold both individually and as part of packages. Save your plate!

Silent Auction

Our popular Silent Auction tables attract hundreds of eager bidders every year. You could find yourself winging your way to exotic places, a show on Broadway, getting a coveted spot in a SoulCycle class or score a table at the timeless classic - Rao's.
Grand St. Settlement is so very lucky to have had the best kind of neighbors. Not only do our restaurants bring their most exciting and impressive dishes to TLES - they do it all from the bottom of their hearts. These chefs donate their time, talent and A teams to our event year after year. We can't thank them enough.
