CHEF WEEK

APRIL 24 - 30

Artistic Expression + Culinary Innovation

Chef Week is a week long Creative Collision of our culinary chefs and visual artists from the M Street Artist Alliance. The blend of artistic expression and culinary innovation can be experienced visually through environmental displays and creative presentations when guests order from the Chef Week feature menu at any M Street restaurant. For further artistic immersion, exclusive avant-garde ticketed dinners will take place at Saint Añejo, Moto, Kayne Prime and Virago.

exclusive chef + Artist collaboration ACTIVATIONS

Chef Week will feature a series of ticketed, private dinner experiences debuting the Creative Collision of culinary innovation and visual artistry. Imagine food displayed as wall art, dishes framed by custom-crafted woodwork and chef's creations inspired by monochromatic color and cubism.

All art has similar motions yet results in limitless differentiation.

Drawing upon artist's innate inclination to think "outside the box", Chef Andrew and Artists Igor Acord and Brian Wooden co-produce this cubism-inspired dining activation.
