Each year the James Beard Foundation adds a new roster of local dining legends to its storied list of America’s Classics. From Totonno’s in Brooklyn to Camp Washington’s Cincinnati Chili to San Francisco’s Yank Sing, these timeless institutions span from coast to coast, representing some of the best of our national nostalgia-inducing cuisines. Now hungry readers will finally have the chance to taste some of these regional delicacies without leaving their own kitchens, thanks to James Beard's Classic All-American Eats: Recipes and Stories from Our Best-Loved Local Restaurants, a collection of the most craveable recipes from America’s Classics honorees.
Tickets to events held at the James Beard House cover the cost of food and a unique dining experience. Dinners are prepared by culinary masters from all regions of the United States and around the world. All alcoholic beverages are provided on a complimentary basis and are not included in the ticket price.

Guests are also welcome to bring a brown-bag lunch. Suggested donation $20. Free admission for students.
