Inspire your palate while investing in young people.

Guest Chef Night is our monthly dinner series where New Orleans’ favorite chefs take over our kitchen in support of our youth programming. Join us for three courses, great company, and recognition of milestones in the careers of our graduates.

We are so grateful to our guest chefs and volunteers, whose contributions enable all of our ticket revenue to go directly to supporting young people.

Dinner is hosted at our 300 N. Broad Street Cafe, which we transform into a fine-dining experience. Passed appetizers start at 6, with seating at 6:30.

This is currently a BYOB event, so feel free to grab a bottle at Whole Foods Market next door!
