Target Dec. 29 to Buy Individual Tickets to Jan. 29 Gunshow “Hired Guns” Dinner Featuring Chefs Rahal and Rojas of Provisions in Montreal, Canada
Rifle through your calendar app and mark Thursday, Dec. 29, as the bull’s-eye day to buy individual tickets to the first Gunshow “Hired Guns” dinner of 2017. For the Sunday, Jan. 29 event, chefs Kevin Gillespie and Joey Ward are crossing the border to bring in guest chefs Hakim Rahal and Pablo Rojas of Provisions in Montreal. Rahal and Rojas have garnered attention from critics and diners alike for their five-course family style menu created around the ingredients of the day from local purveyors. Prior to Dec. 29, tickets to this event were only available to those purchasing the entire “Hired Guns” series. As with the remaining five events, any tickets still available will go on sale for $95 per person one month prior to the dinner via Xorbia. Seating is limited to 100 guests at the intimate dining experience where chefs create and come out of the kitchen to mingle with guests. Next up, Jennifer Carroll of Requin in Washington, D.C. on March 12; Grae Nonas of Tullibee in Minneapolis on May 7; Justin Devillier of La Petite Grocery in New Orleans on Aug. 6; Jamie Bissonnette of Toro and Coppa in Boston on Sept. 10 as well as one more surprise visitor on Nov. 5. “Hired Guns” began in 2013 as a way to lure some of the country’s most-talked-about chefs to Gunshow to share their styles and personalities alongside those of Gunshow’s own “kitchen dudes.” The Glenwood Park restaurant is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday from 6-9 p.m. Reservations are encouraged but not required.
