Michael Carrino

Mike's Pasta & Sandwich Shoppe, Nutley, NJ and Pig & Prince Restaurant & Gastrolounge, Montclair, NJ

At his storied Pig & Prince, Michael Carrino embodies the farm-to-table movement by curing his own meats, assisting at a nearby greenhouse, and working with local livestock breeders to thoughtfully source every element on his menu. Now the chef-on-the-rise will team up with rocker-turned-winemaker Maynard James Keenan, who applies the same philosophy to his craft, for a stellar representation of American terroir.

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.​
