David Nguyen@JACCC Rising Chef Series with Suntory ★★★

Fun Vietnamese Fusion Pop-Up with Stories behind Each Dish. Dishes inspired by Chef David Nguyen's stories about growing up in Vietnam and US. Love the personal touch. He's from French Laundry and Club 33. We figured out that we crossed path at Club 33 in 2014 when he started training there, then he was working at French Laundry when we went in 2017. Flavors and ingredient choice were perfect. Partnered with Suntory, included vodka & whiskey wine pairing. Alcohol on the stronger side, which was fun. $180 + $12.59 fee per person. Tax and tips included. Sold out event. Free parking at structure.
