    As part of the 2019 NYC Alumni Fall Weekend, start with an authentic Italian meal shared with other alums & friends.


    Located in the heart of Chelsea, Crispo is one of NYC's best kept secrets.  "As soon as you step inside Crispo, you're engulfed by dark brick, polished wood, wrought iron, and the smell of the kind of comforting regional-Italian food you can't help but gorge yourself on, including the tastiest spaghetti carbonara in New York City." - Esquire Magazine

    A special fixed price menu of $125/person has been prepared for our group.  Dinner will include a three-course meal of appetizers, main course and dessert served in the traditional family-style.  Beer and wine included during the meal.  All other drinks a la carte (not included).  To confirm reservations, please register for dinner by Tuesday 11/12.  

    A minimum of 10 people will be required for this event. 

    Dinner will start promptly at 8:00pm.  If you wish to meet for a drink ahead of dinner, please arrive ~15 minutes prior.

    Note:  Please bring cash for any cocktails or drinks ordered during dinner beyond the beer & wine provided.
