Glynwood invites you to share our enthusiasm for farmers, aided by the culinary talents of Zak Pelaccio, chef/owner of Fish & Game and 2016 James Beard Foundation Award's Northeast's Chef of the Year.
For this dinner only, Glynwood is offering a subsidized ticket for working farmers, with additional tickets for guests who would like to show their appreciation for the people who grow and raise our food.
Fish & Game was also a James Beard Foundation finalist in 2015 for outstanding restaurant design, and a 2014 semi-finalist for best new restaurant. In 2015, it was named among America's 100 best wine restaurants by Wine Enthusiast magazine. With the food journalist and photographer Peter Barrett, Pelaccio has co-authored a new cookbook, Project 258: Making Dinner at Fish & Game.
