A PUBLIC DOMAIN DINNER WITH CHEFS ANGUS BROWN & NHAN LE
AT THE SHED AT PONCE CITY MARKET
SATURDAY OCTOBER 26 & SUNDAY OCTOBER 27, 2013
I meet so many wonderful people who are passionate about good food at my dinners and we tend to stay in touch. I am grateful that they think to send me emails, texts, or photos when they hear of other unique dining experiences they think I would be interested in knowing about. This is how I heard about Octopus Bar.
A dear friend in Atlanta with impeccable taste in food texted me a couple of years ago to tell me about the amazing meal he was having at this place in East Atlanta that, and I paraphrase, “takes over a restaurant patio after hours to serve their own ever-changing menu of really inspired and unique takes on Asian cuisine”. The place had that renegade angle that I am so attracted to and was another inspiring story of young chefs exploding with culinary zeal who took a unique path to create a space where they could hone and show off their skills.
The chefs I am referring are Angus Brown and Nhan Le. They have turned Octopus Bar into one of Atlanta’s most compelling dining destinations and I am very excited to announce that I will be doing my next Public Domain Dinner with them at The Shed at Ponce City Market. I have not chosen these talented chefs simply because they created a unique dining concept. These dinners are my way of showcasing chefs and producers of quality food and ingredients that I think are important to the communities they are a part of. The chefs I choose to collaborate with have to not only be active in their local food scene and act as our connection to farmers and producers of the ingredients we will use in our dinner, they also have to have qualities that I think will create a fun challenge and lasting friendship for me, and a collaboration that will yield a dinner that I feel is the best example of what the city I am visiting has to offer culinarily. These guys do that in spades.
I grew up in Atlanta and have never done a dinner there. That makes this dinner extra special. I have served countless adventurous Atlanta diners who have chosen to make the bi-monthly trek to the Shotgun House in Athens, GA for the past seven years. This time I am coming to them. With my talented collaborators, this Public Domain Dinner will challenge and delight the palates and senses of adventure of everyone who eats with us.
So tell your friends and bring a crowd. We are doing two nights (Sat. Oct. 26th & Sun Oct 27th) at The Shed at Ponce City Market. It is a very unique outdoor venue at an exciting development in Atlanta that will make this dinner even more memorable.
