Check out scenes from the November 13, 2018 event at the Boston Children's Museum.

On Tuesday, November 13, 1,000 guests joined Boston magazine at the Boston Children’s Museum for the eighth annual Taste event. In celebration of the November “Top 50 Restaurants” issue, the night was host to 38 of the city’s most acclaimed chefs sampling their finest dishes. A portion of ticket proceeds and an on-site silent auction helped raise money for non-profit beneficiary, The Greater Boston Food Bank. Upon arrival to the festivities, AT&T welcomed partygoers at a charging station truck. Once inside and among the beloved Children’s Museum exhibits, attendees relaxed in a sleek lounge by Boston Design Center while enjoying a variety of exquisite food offerings and beverages from Polar, Stella Artois, Social Wines, Don Julio, Brockman’s Premium Gin, Double Cross Vodka,  Grey Goose La Vanille,  Kahlúa,  Virginia Distillery, and Acqua Panna. International flavors were served up by chef Michael Hinds from Barbados and pastry chef Eric Lanlard from Virgin Atlantic Airways. Kenyon Grills partnered with Chef Peter Agostinelli of Grill 23 & Bar to bring guests a delectable grilled steak. Caviar partnered with chefs to provide guests a special taste of four neighborhoods. Additional bites were provided by Dig Inn and Goodnow Farms. All attendees departed the event with a special dog-friendly treat from Polkadog Bakery.
