If you’d like to impress your date with your taste and erudition — and thumb your nose at all your downsizing friends — you can buy a pair of tickets to what is the toniest movie fundraiser ever.

From Quintessentially.com:

The Alloy Theater Company will present a stunning recreation of one of the most amazing classical menus ever created, featuring the most decadent tastes from late 19th century Paris, and immortalized in the Academy Award-winning film Babette’s Feast, at Thomas Keller’s world-renowned Per Se restaurant. Taking place on Friday, January 9 at Per Se (10 Columbus Circle), Keller’s interpretation of the exquisite feast will feature such dishes as Blinis Demidoff (buckwheat cakes with caviar) paired with vintage Veuve Cliquot, and Cailles en Sarcophage (tender quail stuffed with foie gras and encased in a puff pastry shell over a pool of black truffles) paired with Vintage Clos de Vougeot.

The evening will kick off with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at 6pm, followed by a screening of the iconic Danish/French film, and the exquisitely sensuous feast. Tickets cost USD 3,500 each or USD 6,000 for a table for two, and Quintessentially members receive a 20% discount on individual tickets, or a 10% discount on a pair of tickets. Proceeds will benefit the Alloy Theater Company, a new non-profit theater company currently in its first season.
