Chef Daniel Boulud will host his 14th annual Sunday supper to benefit Citymeals-on-Wheels on March 6 at Daniel on Park Avenue and 65th Street in New York. Boulud and guest Chef Gérald Passédat of Le Petit Nice in Marseille will serve a specially designed menu highlighting black truffles and Bordeaux and Burgundy wines for about 150 people. Known as one of the most upscale dining venues in the city, Boulud invites guest to come in jeans. “We realized [guests] love the slightly forbidden-fruit idea of coming to one of the city’s most elegant restaurants and feasting on a sumptuous meal….in their blue jeans,” says Boulud.

This year’s dinner will feature Maine diver scallops layered with black truffles, celery root, and brown butter, and Chef Gérald Passédat’s loup de ligne Lucie Passédat (sea bass) laced with truffles. The main course is a chicken roasted with black truffles and served with fleischnacka, Brussels sprouts, and chestnuts. Daniel’s wine director, Daniel Johnnes, will carefully select Bordeaux and Burgundy wines to pair with each course.

At this annual event, Boulud selects guest chefs to participate as a way to showcase talent and to continue to draw attention to Citymeals, an organization that delivers meals to the homebound. Tickets are still available: $1,000 a person or $25,000 for a table of 10.  (212.288.0033, www.danielnyc.com)
