A Meal that Fuses Cultures and Cuisines
Join Chefs Alain Allegretti and Akhtar Nawab for a masterful meal crafted by two of the most sought-after chefs in the country. Though Allegretti's love of cooking came from his Italian grandmother, he mastered his culinary expertise in France under the tutelage of highly revered chefs Jacques Maximin and Alain Ducasse. In New York City, Allegretti led the kitchen at Le Cirque, became Executive Chef at the critically acclaimed Atelier and now the Partner and Culinary Director for Fig & Olive. Kentucky-bred and of Indian heritage, Chef Akhtar Nawab worked under Tom Colicchio where he also mentored David Chang. He later dove into the cuisine of Mexico and is now the chef/owner of acclaimed Alta Calidad in Brooklyn and Otra Vez in New Orleans. Expect your palate to be wowed by this full-flavored tasting menu from these two powerhouse chefs. They will create a diverse tasting menu that tastes something like if France, Italy and Mexico were all having a dinner party. Dishes will be perfectly paired with great wines for a dining experience you won't get anywhere else.
Wine pairings will be provided by Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits.
