Join We The Eaters for a seafood extravaganza celebrating the versatility and flavors of the sea with an informative dinner hosted by Cedar Restaurant in Washington D.C.
The evening begins with a cash-bar cocktail hour featuring a sparkling varietal from Vino50, passed seafood-inspired hors dâ€™oeuvres, and mingling with purveyors and other guests. Each of three courses begins with a brief talk from ProFish Ltd. about sustainability and sourcing, followed by a presentation of the course by Cedar’sÂ Executive Chef, Aaron McCloud. Chef McCloud will also answer questions and provide cooking tips for a variety of seafood that guests can try at home.
Attendees will receive a gift bag with supplemental educational material, discount coupons, promotional “schwag,” as well as a recipe for a seafood dish and accompanying spice rub.
Tickets are $85, plus gratuity (charged on-site), and may be purchased through Eventbrite. There is a $75 early bird special for a limited number of tickets — so get yours soon!
To maintain an intimate event where guests have maximum interaction with Chef McCloud and the other presenters, seating is limited. For adults over the age of 21, a wine pairing will be available onsite for an additional fee. Each wine has been carefully selected to complement the individual courses of the meal.
A portion of proceeds for the event will be donated to No Kid Hungry.
