SUPER SECRET DINNER— On April 30, chef Randy Rucker will host a multi-course dinner that spotlights Third Coast cuisine. While the location remains undisclosed, we do know that the cost to attend this BYOB dinner is $65 per person. As for the menu, it won't be published "until the actual day of the event. However, you can count on the menu being studded with lots of cultivated, wild & indigenous products that help provide a connection between the guests & their surroundings."
