Mission of this dinner:

  • To remind people that we are still connected, still social, even from a distance.
  • To provide respite and celebration of food and people, the way restaurants have always done, but in a time of crisis we bring the restaurant to them.
  • To keep each other safe and sane – this collaboration will happen virtually, from menu development to execution.
  • To help keep restaurants, farmers, and chefs afloat during turbulent times.
