Art of the Food Opens Friday

Art of the Food, an annual event at the Carnegie in Covington, will be hosting an opening on Friday, March 5th at 6 PM. This is a cool event– a couple of years ago, I remember sitting at Lavomatic listening to Jean-Robert wax rhapsodic about a Mona Lisa made out of toast– that features both art and food. Chefs and restaurants featured at the opening include:

The Avenue Lounge
Mark Bodenstein, Chalk Food + Wine
The Bean Haus
The BonBonerie
Cristian Pietoso, Via Vite
Joel Molloy, Nicola’s
Sumer Gennetti, The Palace at the Cincinnatian
Julie Francis, Nectar
Jeremy Luers, Rookwood Bar and Restuarant
Jean Francois Fletchet, Taste of Belgium
Paul Weckman, Otto’s
Dave Taylor, Wise Owl
Nick Marckwald, The Quarter
Jean Philippe Solnom

Tickets are $25 in advance, $35 at the door– were I in town on Friday night, I’d definitely be there (alas, I am writing this from my hotel room in Houston).
