We hope you've been fasting, because the Houston Press is excited to host the 15th Annual Menu of Menus® Extravaganza, presented by Stella Artois, on Tuesday, April 4 at 7 p.m. That's tomorrow, folks, so if you don't have tickets, better step on it.
With more than 40 area restaurants participating this year, guests will sample from tastings of local hotspots including Boheme, Beaver’s, Field & Tides, Krisp Bird & Batter, Peli Peli Kitchen and Pepper Twins alongside wine, beer and cocktail sampling.
The event will also include the 6th Annual Iron Fork Chef Competition, presented by Whole Foods Market, pitting up-and-coming chefs Gary Ly of Underbelly and Lyle Bento of Southern Goods head to head for a cook-off style battle in front of some 2000 guests.
This year's moderator will be restaurateur Kevin Naderi of Roost, who also happens to be a four-time winner (between 2012 and 2015) and one of last year's competition judges. Naderi previously offered some advice to this year's competitors: Don't overthink, use your time well, highlight the secret ingredient and have fun.
The Menu of Menus® Extravaganza takes place at Silver Street Studios, 1501 Silver, April 4 from 7 to 10 p.m. and you can still grab VIP ($95) and general admission tickets ($55) for tomorrow night online here. Doors open at 7 p.m. but VIP entry gets you access to the party at 6 p.m.
