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.
