We are thrilled to announce that Cameron Mitchell Restaurants has been invited to host a dinner at the James Beard House in New York City on December 7.
James Beard was a renowned American chef, cookbook author and teacher. He helped educate and mentor generations of professional chefs. Today, the James Beard Foundation continues his legacy by celebrating and honoring chefs making America's food culture more delicious, diverse and sustainable for everyone.
An invitation to serve dinner at the James Beard House is a coveted invite and an amazing honor for us at CMR.
“We feel this invitation is not only a testament to the innovation Cameron Mitchell Restaurants is bringing to the restaurant industry, but to the thriving culinary scene here in Columbus,” said Brian Hinshaw, senior VP of food & beverage.
We’ve chosen to host an “Ultimate Surf & Turf” themed dinner, highlighting our Mitchell’s Ocean Club/Ocean Prime concept, and the signature interplay of meat and seafood classics that we have become well-known for.
Hinshaw has worked closely with members of our Culinary Guild here in Columbus to create the menu, which will provide an evening of delicious seafood, steak, champagne, cocktails and more. The CMR Culinary Guild, listed below, will travel to New York City to prepare the dinner:
- Brian Hinshaw, senior VP of food & beverage and executive corporate chef
- Ryan Valentine, director of beverage
- Andrea Hoover, beverage operations manager
- Summer Schott, corporate executive pastry chef
- Ian Rough, regional chef
- Jamie Kline, regional chef, CMPE
Mitchell’s Ocean Club and Ocean Prime guests can get a taste of the meal as well! From now through November 30, a featured dish from the James Beard House dinner will be on the menu. The Ahi Tuna Rossini is topped with seared foie gras, caramelized mushrooms, carrots, and Brussels sprout leaves, finished with a truffle reduction. A Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin wine pairing from the dinner is also available by the glass for a limited time.
For those interested in traveling to New York for the full experience, tickets can be purchased via the James Beard website for $210.
