How does sampling dishes from top restaurants in the Capital Region for a great cause sound? Check out the upcoming Chef’s Challenge in Saratoga that will be raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region!
What to Expect From The Chef’s Challenge
The Chef’s Challenge is taking place on Thursday, May 24th at Excelsior Springs in Saratoga. Seven restaurants will present a signature dish and accompanying cocktail or beverage to compete in the People’s Choice food competition. Guests will try each dish and vote for their favorite, and then the winning restaurant will compete in a head-to-head competition at the next Chef’s Challenge event.
The seven restaurants participating are: The Olde Bryan Inn, 2 West Bar and Grill, Upstate Distilling, Fish on 30 Lake, Nothing Bundt Cakes, and Bon Bons. The head-to-head challenge will feature Chef Thomas Gulbrandsen of Excelsior Springs and Chef Derek Adams from Warehouse Grill & BBQ.
“The food and drinks are always delicious, but it’s also a wonderful opportunity for the community to get involved in our mission while enjoying a night out,” Sabrina Houser, Chief Executive Officer of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region, said in a statement.
Tickets are $75 for general admission, $50 for young professionals (under 30 years old), or you could opt for date night tickets (two tickets) at $112.50 or honorary committee tickets at $150.
