James Beard House

Map & Directions 167 W. 12th St.
New York, NY 10011


Village Voice's Description

James Beard, who wrote over two dozen cookbooks, became a TV personality, and founded The James Beard Cooking School 1955, wanted everyone to cook. His foundation continues to honor chefs and cookbook authors, but also to instill a knowledge and love of food in young people through a scholarship program for culinary school students (some of whom have gone on to achieve their own gourmet glory). The foundation is also deeply involved with a program called Spoons Across America, a not-for-profit organization which educates schoolchildren about nutrition and the social significance of food. Dinners, lunches, and workshops are held at The James Beard House to showcase chefs and techniques from around the world.

Tips from foursquare

    We got to meet Chef Garces and have an exceptional Spanish inspired five course tasting menu. Amazing experience with an amazing chef!

  • Helen R. on 07/30/11

    The alcove at the back of the 2nd floor dining room has a mirrored ceiling. It was Beard's bedroom. That's right.

    Great organization to support. When you join you'll receive a $50 dining certificate to your first event!

    Love their cocktail parties, which draws a younger, hipper crowd. Mingle and feast. See photos from a party here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=90498&id=765634189&l=6ba2970afe

    You'll feel out of place if you're not over 50, white & a republican.
