Jenny Glasgow

Olivier Cheng Catering and Events - NYC

Experience the magic of an event master at work when Olivier Cheng brings his polished, chic aesthetic to the Beard House for a spectacular dinner. Executive Chef Jenny Glasgow cut her teeth at Matthew Kenney Cuisine, launching the highly regarded Commune and Canteen restaurants in Manhattan before joining Cheng’s cutting-edge kitchen. The night’s menu is a riff on the theme of smoke, wisps of which appear in several dishes, and mirrors, as reflected by Glasgow’s artful presentation.
