A national dining event celebrating your local restaurant community.

Taste America, presented by Capital One, is a nationwide initiative to bring together chefs, special guests, and diners from across the country to celebrate the local independent restaurants at the heart of our communities.

The dinner at Lengua Madre will be an intimate gathering with a multi-course menu created by Chef Ana Castro of Lengua Madre in New Orleans and Chef Yia Vang of Union Hmong Kitchen / Vinai in Minneapolis. The menu will reflect their signature styles and highlight the uniqueness of their restaurants and communities. The dinner will also include beverage pairings for each course.
