Dining in Fort Lauderdale is getting a lot more exciting! We’ve all heard about those secret, underground dinners in foodie hotspots like Los Angeles and NYC where nobody knows what will be on the menu or who will be attending. Well, South Florida foodies are in store for something just like that but a little better in that proceeds from the dinner go to a good cause. Today, February 20th, at 7:00 PM tickets go on sale for The Traveling Plate’s second underground dinner of the year benefitting ARC Broward Culinary Institute. While the menu won’t be revealed until the February 28th dinner, we do know that Chef Steve Zobel of d.b.a./café will be in charge, so pretty much anything is possible.
With such offerings at his d.b.a./café as chicken and funnel cake - a riff on the classic chicken and waffles - as well as a slew of other eclectic dishes showcasing his classic training and technique, a surprise dinner by Chef Zobel promises to be anything but expected. In addition to a wonderful meal, the February 28th dinner will take place at the Sample-McDougald House, one of the most historic buildings in South Florida.
The best part of the dinner, however, is the knowledge that your foodie indulgence will aid in providing scholarships to future student chefs attending the ARC Broward Culinary Institute, which assists adults with disabilities and other life challenges in pursuing careers in the food industry. Since debuting in February 2012, the Traveling Plate’s underground dinners have raised more than $15,000 dollars to provide students scholarship opportunities
Tickets are known to sell out in minutes, so be sure to purchase yours this evening, February 20th, starting at 7:00 PM.
