Menu of Menus is less than a week away, and we have a spread of new restaurants that have been added to the tasting line-up:
Artisans Cuisine & Savior-Faire Green Seed Vegan Gumbo Express.com House of Blues Los Cucos Michiru Sushi Nazif's Turkish Grill Sorrel Urban Bistro
If you haven't made it out to brand-new spots like Michiru Sushi or if our recent review of Nazif's Turkish Grill piqued your curiosity, now's your chance to try a bunch of our favorite restaurants all in one place -- no driving all around town required.
Tickets are currently on sale, with general admission going for $50 and a limited supply of VIP tickets for $90. The cost of the general admission ticket goes up to $60 at the door, but as of right now, it's looking as though Menu of Menus will sell out before that happens. So seriously -- get your passes now while you still can. Remember: A portion of the proceeds goes to benefit Kids' Meals.
Menu of Menus kicks off at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9 at Silver Street Station, sponsored by Stella Artois and Izkali Tequila (which will both be giving out generous samples all night long). The second annual Iron Fork competition will begin at 8 p.m., sponsored by Whole Foods Market, and will pit industry heavyweights Ryan Hildebrand against Kevin Naderi in a live, head-to-head cooking contest.
Here's a full list of restaurants participating in this year's Menu of Menus -- where we'll see you in just six short days:
