Virginia Beach Bash

With its endless beaches, idyllic national parks, and abundance of fresh seafood, it’s no surprise that Virginia Beach attracts visitors in droves.

New Appalachian

This special Beard House dinner is a celebration of the often less-traveled culinary terrain of Appalachia. Anne and Richard Arbaugh, whose South Hills Market and Café is a West Virginia gem, will present a menu that features their at once modern and highly personal take on their region’s cuisine.

Wednesday, August 26, 7:00 P.M.

Street and Savory

If his three Cincinnati hot spots are any indication, Daniel Wright is not one for labels or limitations, delighting diners with his takes on barbecue, “haute” dogs, and global street food. The 2012 Food & Wine Best New Chef winner is bringing his eclectic fare to the Beard House for a dinner highlighting the delicious potential of pop culture, high culture, and everything in between.

Thursday, August 27, 6:30 P.M to 8:30 P.M.
