Beard on Books: Charlotte Silver
Charlotte Silver chronicles her unconventional upbringing in the witty and whimsical Charlotte au Chocolat: Memories of a Restaurant Girlhood. Much like a real-life Eloise at the Plaza Hotel, she spent her youth at her mother's glamorous restaurant and learned the behind-the-scenes reality of the restaurant industry at a tender age.
Wednesday, August 8, 7:00 P.M.
Charlie McKenna has a pretty fancy pedigree for a guy who moonlights as a barbecue competitor: he’s the former sous-chef at Chicago stalwarts Tru and Avenues and he trained under Norman Van Aken. Now the chef and owner of Lillie’s Q, McKenna oversees both smoker and stove with aplomb, crafting elevated versions of classic Southern dishes.

New Jersey native Corey Heyer worked with legendary chefs Daniel Boulud, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and Tom Colicchio before returning to his home state to helm the kitchen at the historic Bernards Inn. For this Beard House dinner, the chef has crafted a spectacular seafood menu to be paired with wines selected by Terri Baldwin.
