“What happens when hundreds of people gather for a one-pot meal at a communal table in a restaurant without walls on the High Line?” That’s the question being asked and answered at High Line Social Soup Experiment, presented by Friends of the High Line, where 200 New Yorkers will gather to lunch on soup and bread. Chef Mona Talbott, author of Zuppe: Soups from the Kitchen of the American Academy in Rome, will prepare the meal. When else do you get a chance to dine outdoors with strangers of all ages?
