David Chang and PGA's The Northern Trust are teaming up for the ultimate collaboration. The Northern Trust is the new rebranded part of the PGA's FedEx Cup, and it's about to become a huge cultural event.
Picture the U.S. Open, but for golf and you've got the gist of it. The Northern Trust wants to transform the Glen Oaks Club in Long Island into a playground for golf lovers, culminating in the Taste NY Marketplace.
According to their reps, the Marketplace will be "an immersive culinary space exclusive to the Northern Trust Tournament [formerly the Barclay's Tournament]... that features the best of New York dining in special edition, casual menus."
Topping the list of menus is David Chang's Fuku.
The Momofuku legend will be joined by New York State-sourced food and chefs, including Mario by Mary, a collaboration between Mary Giuliani, a well-known and incredibly talented caterer, and Mario Batali.
Batali is thrilled, emphasizing, “There’s no sport I enjoy more than golf, so I’m honored and excited to be a small part of the tournament’s delicious food lineup.”
Others announced to be a part of the event include Junior's Cheesecake, Nathan's Famous, Mario Forgione's Lobster Press and more NYC staples that you're going to love!
The Northern Trust is one of four events in the FedExCup Playoffs. Its the peak of the PGA Tour season and features 125 players, all vying to advance as they compete with other top golfers.
And what better way to enjoy nail-biting competition than tasty treats to encourage your nervous eating habit?
Fans onsite can even indulge in areas to shop, lounge and eat and drink the incredible fare they offer.
The Tournament takes place from August 22nd until the 27th, so hurry up and get your tickets! Fashion, food and sport make this a winning combo and a not-to-be-missed event.[Feature Image Courtesy Instagram]
