Art of Food gets bigger and better every year.
Each year, chefs and artists take over the Carnegie with food-themed art, both edible and not. The exhibit runs through March 16th, but the best time to go is its opening night on Friday, February 28th. The event includes bites from chefs all over the country, art, and this year a special “unbirthday” tea party hosted and designed by Pam Kravetz, featuring video, sculpture, and other surprises.
The chefs featured:
Alfio’s, Chef Alfio Gulisano
Chocolates Latour, Chef Shalini Latour
Coffee Emporium, Tony Tausch
Cup Cake Crazy, Chef Lisa Ebbert
Eat Well Celebration and Feasts, Chef Renee Schuler
Fireside Pizza, Chef Mike Marschman
Fresh Table, Chef Meredith Trombly
Jean-Robert’s Table, Chef Jean-Robert deCavel
Jeff Thomas Catering, Chef Steve Waddell
La Poste Eatery, Chef Andrew Mersmann
Metropole, Chef Michael Paley
Otto’s, Chef Paul Weckman
Senate, Chef Daniel Wright
Taste of Belgium, Chef Jean-Francois Flechet
The Metropolitan Club, Chef Kelsey Yerger
The Rookwood, Chef Jackson Rouse

The visual art is also fantastic. Last year I picked up a piece from Eric Brass that involves Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction. You can guess how that’s food related. Tickets are $35 for members, $50 for non-members, and sell out quickly. Purchase them on The Carnegie’s website.
