Brian Cartenuto

Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox, Boca Raton, FL; Deerfield Beach, FL; and Niceville, FL

For Brian Cartenuto, cooking is all about your roots: his beloved Joey’s Italian Grill & Bar pays tribute to his heritage, while the raucous Tucker Duke’s Lunchbox is a nod to his native Florida Panhandle and its common culinary ground with the American South.

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.​
