Spring Elegance

Vernick Food & Drink has been described by the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Craig LeBan as “one of the year’s most exciting restaurants,” and by in-the-know food lovers as one of the industry’s hottest tables. Join talented, buzzed-about chef Greg Vernick (an alum of Per Se and Jean Georges) as he makes his Beard House debut.

Three-Star Italian

After running the celebrated Il Buco for nearly 20 years, its owners decided it was time to launch a sister restaurant. Along came Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria—and heaps of praise. The New York Times awarded the lively spot three stars and included it on its list of the best openings of 2012.

Wednesday, April 10, 12:00 noon

Enlightened Eaters: Jared Koch

Are you tired of being told which diet is the "right" one? By paying attention to the body’s response to different ingredients and emphasizing organic foods grown in their natural state, nutritional consultant Jared Koch believes that anyone can create their own ideal diet. In The Clean Plates Cookbook, he offers satisfying recipes—spanning from gluten-free to raw to Paleo principles—from the Clean Plates test kitchen and from top toques like Jamie Oliver, Marc Forgione, and Michael Anthony, as well as the tools and inspiration necessary to make any diet more delicious.

Wednesday, April 10, 7:00 P.M.

Lambs and Clams

Virginia shepherd Craig Rogers and oysterman Travis Croxton are known across the country for their eagerly anticipated, raucous parties during which chefs gather to feast on lamb, shellfish, and moonshine. Join us when the dynamic duo, along with a talented group of colleagues, bring their storied fête to the Beard House.

Thursday, April 11, 7:00 P.M.

Rioja Celebration

The three-martini lunch may be a bygone ritual, but you can still get a generous dose of ’60s-era glamour at La Fonda del Sol. Experience this Midtown landmark, which has been reimagined as a modern tapas restaurant, when it visits the Beard House for a celebration of Rioja.

Thursday, April 12, 7:00 P.M.

Rocky Mountain Retreat

A breathtaking location, luxurious accommodations, and a storied past (as the inspiration for the setting of The Shining) make the Stanley Hotel an unforgettable destination. Equally memorable is chef Richard Beichner’s contemporary American cuisine, which showcases the chef’s technical skill and fine-dining finesse along with local Colorado ingredients.
