Thanks to Schrager's expertise, Gilt City members can expect more access to top culinary destinations and to receive the same perks he enjoys at the country's most exclusive restaurants.
Schrager is also giving users an insider's view into the upscale food world -- on Gilt City's new editorial space cityunlisted.com
"Lee's expertise highlighted on Gilt City will give our members insider access to the very best the dining industry has to offer. He is one of the top influencers in the food world, and we look forward to creating offers with the country's top restaurants and chefs to benefit our members," said Gilt City president Nate Richardson, who hosted a fete Thursday night welcoming Schrager at the James Beard Foundation pop-up space in Chelsea Market.
Gilt City has already been breaking the mold with some of its upscale dining offers -- a recent Wedding in a Box offer from Mario Batali's Del Posto (a full wedding experience valued at $30,000) sold out in record time and already has 75 members on the waiting list. Other recent food offers include private sushi lessons at Nobu (another sellout at $300) and tickets to the James Beard Foundation's pop-up Dinner, where guests can experience a custom menu created by Inaki Aizpitarte of Paris's Le Chateaubriand and Momofuku's David Chang.
