DAY 2: Christmakwanzakkah Party
Forget about all your other holiday parties. The holiday party of all holiday parties has officially arrived! We're thrilled to be teaming up with one of the top-rated TC event hosts of 2019, Maketto, for our very first DC Christmakwanzakkah Party. Executive Chef/Owner Erik Bruner-Yang, a semi-finalist for 2016's James Beard Award for Best Chef Mid-Atlantic, totally blew attendees away at our first collaboration together back in March. So, when we were considering options for this year's holiday party, Maketto was at the top of the list. In the spirit of the holidays, the format for this event series will be different than our typical event format - passed hors d'oeuvres cocktail party to start before moving into the seated portion of the party. The evening will kick off with a plethora of Chef Bruner-Yang's favorite canapés as you drink and mingle. Then, we'll take our seats for a large-format feast. Of course, we'll wrap up the night with a chef Q&A during dessert. For those of you who weren't able to attend our first event at Maketto, you can read up on Chef Bruner-Yang's SUPER impressive background below. It speaks for itself!
About the Host:
Executive Chef & Owner
Chef Bruner-Yang opened his first eatery, Toki Underground, in 2011, and the restaurant quickly rose to the #1 spot on Eater's annual Best New Restaurants list. He followed it up with Maketto in April 2015, which earned him numerous James Beard Award Semi-Finalist Nominations for “Rising Star Chef of the Year” in 2015 and “Best Chef in America” in 2016.
Some items be served as passed canapés, some will be served family-style, and some will be individually plated.
