Hive to Table Dining Experience

Join us this season for an intimate dining experience that will demonstrate just how integral honey bees are to human existence.

All while invigorating your taste buds and bringing you stimulating conversation.


In the spirit of pleasure and education, The Connected Chef and Astor Apiaries are bringing you seasonal Hive-to-Table Dinners that center around the journey of a honey bee and their importance in our food system. 

Connecting you to where your food comes from is our main jam here at The Connected Chef. We also believe that the act of connecting with where and how your food is produced should be indulgent.

It can’t always be work, right?

It's not just a meal!



Each dinner includes a cocktail hour with local NYC bee keeper, Astor Apiaries where you will engage in a honey tasting and view their observational hive. You will learn about the community that bees live in and how these magical creatures contribute to our planet in various ways.

From there you will sit down for a three- or four- course meal with wine pairings and learn about the various tastes and how honey can be incorporated into every meal. 

All menus are plant forward and gluten free.
