3-Night ChefsFeed Event at Lio

22 chefs from 7 states and 21 restaurants will be converging at Lio early next month for 3 multi-course collaboration dinners on September 5th, September 6th, and September 8th. Tickets are now on sale.

Each night’s tasting menu will include a journey into the mind of each chef and the creative process that went into each of their dishes.
