Ken Oringer, Ming Tsai, and friends held a swanky $500-per-plate mega-fund-raiser last night at Mike's City Diner in Boston's South End. Chef Joanne Chang tweets that the dinner raised a hefty $30,000: "So honored to work w such generous passionate community of food lovers, chefs, hospitality professionals!" she enthuses. It's been a busy week for Oringer: He was recently spotted chatting about the opening of his Toro NYC with none other than Rachael Ray. [Twitter/JBChang, Earlier]
