Attention tennis fans! Tis the season, and your favorite sport is about to get a bit more posh. Ever heard of Citi Taste of Tennis? Because it's bigger and better than ever!

Now in its 18th year, Citi Taste of Tennis is an annual food and tennis experience produced by AYS. This year it's at the W hotel on August 24th and features a roster headlined by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto.

All day long, NYC's top chefs will show off their culinary prowess as famous tennis players serve those who attend.

Feel free to fangirl out on that one because you might get the opportunity to dance the night away with Venus Williams or be served some fancy fries by Rafael Nadal.

If that isn't exciting enough, what would you say about a full-on sushi competition between Morimoto and famous tennis duo, The Bryan Brothers, Bob and Mike Bryan? 

They'll show off their sushi-making skills during the VIP hour for those lucky enough to beat the crowd to the main event. 


The line-up of chefs doesn't end at Morimoto. This year's list includes Jonathan Waxman (Barbuto), Andy D’Amico (5 Napkin Burger), Antoine Westermann (Le Coq Rico), April Bloomfield (Salvation Taco, Salvation Burger), Seamus Mullen (Lifeway) and more.

The party starts at 7 p.m. where guests can indulge on cocktails, and bites and visit destination-themed lounges. 


And the party doesn't stop when the lights go out. This year's soiree includes a special Citi Taste of Tennis After Dark, which promises to be a dessert-tasting like no other. 

From 9-11 p.m., guests can indulge in incredible and well-known sweets from places like Wowfulls, I CE NY and Cookie DO. 


Also included are dessert drinks, and top tennis players who also have a taste for sweet treats.

Be sure to get your tickets here before they sell out. We have a feeling these will be going quick!
