Shelters get fancy food thanks to Sandy

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

You might not expect to see beef bourguignon on the menu at a shelter.

But folks displaced by Superstorm Sandy got to enjoy some gourmet grub yesterday.

The food was supposed to have been served at the New York Public Library's black-tie fundraiser.

But the gala was canceled in the wake of the massive storm.

So, the fancy vittles for about 600 people went to three shelters on hard-hit Staten Island.

Tickets for canceled gala went for $2,500.

Library officials say they haven't gotten requests for refunds.
