Best of Brennan’s 

Ten years after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, we are honored to celebrate the city’s resilience with the fabled Brennan family. With a menu devoted to the renowned seafood of the South, host Ralph Brennan and his group of world-class chefs will bring their historic opulence and modern techniques up North to the Beard House.

Cambridge Cookout

When it comes to New England cuisine, lobster rolls and clam chowder may get all the attention, but the region’s coastline offers far more for those willing to dig. For this dinner, we’ve assembled a team of Boston-area culinary colleagues for a deep dive into the bounty of the beaches they call home.
