Chefs Night Off x Publico x Central Restaurant Product Present: Cross Polination I

Chefs’ Night Off will be hosting their first dinner in St. Louis, MO at Público (6679 Delmar Blvd., University City, MO 63130) in the famous Delmar Loop on Tuesday, October 25 at 6:30 PM. Alan Sternberg of Cerulean Indianapolis comes to town to collaborate with Mike Randolph of Público, Randolfi’s and Half and Half, Michael Gallina of the much-anticipated Vicia, and Chris Bolyard of Bolyard’s Meats and Provisions.

Chefs' Night Off is an ongoing series of "pirate" dinners, curated by founder R.j. Wall from Indianapolis. Conceptualized and executed by cooks and bartenders from the most respected restaurants around the Midwest, the series has featured award-winning individuals such as Chef Kevin Ashworth of 610 Magnolia and Milkwood, as well as Chef Matt Jozwiak and Sous Chef Brian Fischer of Schwa, and Bloomington James Beard semi finalist David Tallent of Tallents.

The goal of Chefs’ Night Off is to get cooks working with other cooks – exchanging ideas, having fun, and showcasing the developing talents of chefs from other Midwest cities. The series facilitates a creative think tank for up-and-coming culinary and bar talent. Chefs’ Night Off has also done dinners in Louisville, Indy, and Chicago, but this first trip to St. Louis showcases our city’s top talented chefs in a new way. Guests dine together at communal tables, and the chefs interact with them to create a dining experience unlike any other. There is no razzle dazzle. No unnecessary frills – just the people who put the flame to the pan breaking loose for one night and bringing to life their cuisines in their way.
