Tomato Fête

With experience under JBF Award winners Ming Tsai, Barbara Lynch, and Jean-Georges Vongerichten, it’s no surprise that Chris Stam was tapped to helm Daniel Boulud’s New York City hot spot, DB Bistro Moderne. For his Beard House debut, Stam will offer a taste of his New England–influenced French cuisine with a menu celebrating the best of summer’s harvest: the tomato.

Inspired by his Afro-Caribbean roots, the JBF Boot Camp alum recently opened Kith/Kin in Washington, D.C., where he celebrates the African diaspora through a menu of modern, stylish, and thoroughly unique flavors.
