The Annual Closing Dinner features media hour, live performances, and a preview of the chefs' curated menus at the James Creek Marina in Southwest DC. The event will take place on a private boat balcony and pier overlooking the Potomac River at Sunset.
These hand-selected chefs will showcase cuisines from El Salvador, the Caribbean and the deep south of America.
Guests choose from a single seat reservation or a Chef's Table for 10. Our Chef's Tables are reserved for your group or organization exclusively (if not already reserved). Each reservation features 4 bottles of champagne and table concierge.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated towards our Culinary Arts Grant Fund and our nonprofit partner, The Green Scheme. Dietary restrictions will be accommodated as best as possible. You will receive an email from your table concierge once booked.
If you have a larger party than 10 and would like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Wednesday September 22.
