Kitchen Here’s what happening at the Beard House and around the country next week: Tuesday, July 28, 7:00 P.M. Swine and Wine Though the Year of the Pig is technically over, chefs across the country are still going hog-wild for pork. Join us for a spectacular snout-to-tail dinner that will be prepared by chefs Brad Farmerie and Christopher Rendell of the perennially popular Public and newcomers Double Crown and the Monday Room. Wednesday, July 29, 7:00 P.M. Best of D.C. Chefs It’s a new day in the nation’s capital: there’s a new President, a new majority in the Senate, and a new way of doing things. Change is good, but we’re happy to report that Washington, D.C.’s dynamic food scene remains as deliciously compelling as ever. Find out for yourself when this group of D.C. power chefs visits us at the Beard House. Thursday, July 30, 11:00 A.M. Luncheon Aboard the Queen Mary 2 Enjoy this luxurious, one-time-only lunch aboard the opulent Queen Mary 2 when it docks in Brooklyn. Guests will dine in style at the Britannia restaurant and experience a tour of one of the grandest, most magnificent ocean liners ever built. Don’t miss this chance to see it for yourself! Thursday, July 30, 7:00 P.M. Summer Steak Escape Named for the food industry term for meat packaging, Bokx 109 American Prime brings new meaning to the term “modern American steakhouse.” Though the ultrahip restaurant, located in a boutique hotel outside of Boston, features poolside dining, fire pits, and a killer sound system, chef Evan Percoco’s masterful menu delivers substance along with the sizzle.
