The Beard House
Member Price: $170 Public Price: $220 Phone: 212.627.2308
Fogo Island Inn, Fogo Island, Newfoundland, Canada
Just offshore of Newfoundland, on very the fringe of North America, lies remote Fogo Island, the rocky, salt-sprayed home to Fogo Island Inn. The brainchild of social entrepreneur (and Fogo Island native) Zita Cobb, the Inn has become a luxurious destination (think: Relais & Châteaux–pedigreed chef Jonathan Gushue’s unforgettable take on local fare) with a mission to preserve and economically bolster a historic population.
Dinner attendees have the opportunity to claim free admission to an associated event the following night at The New School. Cobb, Gushue, and journalist Gabriella Gershenson will join a conversation moderated by the James Beard Foundation's Mitchell Davis about this important economic development project. Guests will be contacted about how to register. For more information about the event click here.
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.
