Eat+Drink

Enjoy the food. Savor the conversation.

September 8th with Aaron Aldridge

Chef Aaron Aldridge set the bar very high last year with his first visit to the eat+drink Dinner Series and we're sure he won't disappoint again this year! 

Aaron's obsession with great food and drink began in his grandmother's Louisiana kitchen. She taught him where the best food comes from...the soul. He's perfected traditional Creole cuisine while mirroring the New Orleans melting pot culture. He recently relocated to Los Angeles and we are lucky to experience his first creations in the City of Angels!
