Here's what's coming up at the James Beard House and around the country:
Monday, February 2, 7:00 P.M.
The Mighty Virginia Shack
Dubbed “the Incredible Restaurant that Nobody Knows About” by Josh Ozersky, the Shack—a tiny, 16-seat phenomenon—is run by pedigreed chef and JBF Award semifinalist Ian Boden. The chef’s ambitious tasting menu is usually served on weekends only, but he’s bending the rules for this not-to-be-missed Beard House event.
Tuesday, February 3, 7:00 P.M.
Bottega: Italy to Spain with a Southern Accent
Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to experience JBF Award winner Frank Stitt’s legendary cooking. A local-food pioneer and Southern culinary stalwart, Stitt brought exceptional, Italian-inflected cuisine to Alabama with the opening of Bottega in 1988. Join him and Paul Yeck as they celebrate the restaurant’s legacy at this Beard House dinner.
Wednesday, February 4, 7:00 P.M.
Awarded a coveted Michelin star just four months after opening, the Musket Room has already left an impressive mark on the New York City dining scene. Join us for a taste of Matt Lambert’s dynamic fusion of American and New Zealand fare, which keeps diners lining up at this Nolita hot spot.
Thursday, February 5, 7:00 P.M.
Taste of the North Fork
Perched near the harbor in one of the East End’s most bustling towns, Noah’s draws locals and city dwellers alike with its wide variety of oysters and elegant, seasonal, and locally sourced small plates. Join us for a taste of chef Noah Schwartz’s signature fare, paired with local wines from the North Fork’s famous Bedell Cellars.
