Celebrating Anthony Bourdain

DATE: Saturday, June 26
TIME : Doors & Dinner: 7:00 PM, Movie Starts: 8:30 PM

Tickets are limited to this event, so don’t miss out.

Join us on June 26 for an exclusive evening celebrating the late gifted chef, Anthony Bourdain. Attendees will enjoy a private early screening of the new film Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain ahead of the theatrical release date while savoring foods themed on the exploration of international culture & cuisine with an ode to Bourdain’s legacy and beloved TV shows ‘Parts Unknown’ and ‘No Reservations.’

The highly-anticipated documentary is an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at how an anonymous chef became a world-renowned cultural icon. From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?), this unflinching look at Bourdain reverberates with his presence, in his own voice, and in the way he indelibly impacted the world around him.

Bridgetown Roti

In Trinidad and Barbados, roti stands are as ubiquitous as Taco trucks are in LA. After slavery was abolished throughout the Caribbean in the late 19th century, Southern Indians were work sent to island plantations where they introduced Paratha rotis to the region. With flavors that encompass the vivacity of the tropical islands, Chef Rashida has seamlessly woven the traditions and history of the Caribbean into her rendition of home-style food.
