The Hundred Stories team had the good fortune of mingling with our neighbors in the Financial District at the inaugural Friends of FiDi event earlier this week! Léman Manhattan Preparatory School and FiDi Association hosted the evening that brought together our favorite downtown businesses. Wall & Water, BAR SE7EN 5IVE, Felice, La Maison Du Chocolat and Downtown Cellars provided to-die-for treats to satisfy our cravings, while our eyes feasted on the beautiful displays from Flowers of the World and Greenwich Jewelers offered a visual feast. Felice’s crostone ricotta appetizer with tuscan bread, ricotta, spicy honey, dried figs, toasted almonds was out of this world, while the mounds of chocolate at La Maison’s table kept us coming back for more! Other participating businesses included Andaz Wall Street, W Downtown, Tumi, Professione Casa, Donald Roland, M.D., Maiden Lane Dental, Tourbillon, Downtown Magazine, and Rosabianca & Associates. The evening also featured a silent auction to benefit the Downtown Alliance’s “Going Green” program – all proceeds go towards beautifying the neighborhood by enhancing the parks. It was a true delight to see so many smiling faces of all ages fill the ballroom – we can’t wait to see everyone again soon at the upcoming spring planting! We couldn’t be more ready for some warm weather!
