For one night only, on Thursday, October 18, Chef Abra creates a family-style dinner in Travelle’s kitchen. The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour meet-and-greet, giving diners the chance to mingle with Chef Abra and sip libations.
Following the cocktail hour, the four-course, family-style dinner continues with guests seated at communal tables in Travelle’s wine cellar to witness Chef Abra working in the glass-enclosed show kitchen. The meal commences at 7 p.m. with hors d'oeuvres from Travelle and two signature dishes from Chef Abra. The meal concludes with dessert from Travelle Pastry Sous Chef Danielle Marelli.
The cost of the dinner will be $65 per person, and ten percent of the night’s proceeds will go to the charity of Chef Abra’s choice, Plant Chicago, a non-profit dedicated to making cities healthier and more efficient by developing and sharing the most innovative methods for sustainable food production, energy conservation, and material reuse.
