The 6th Annual Eat Drink RI Festival is a celebration showcasing the best of the culinary world in Rhode Island. Presenting farmers, chefs, bartenders and food & drink artisans from across the region, the Festival offers a VIP reception, unique dining opportunities, charitable events, and culminates with the Grand Tasting, an All-Local Tasting featuring farmer & chef cooking demonstrations and author signings.
There are no upcoming dates for this event.
One of Rhode Island’s most popular dining series, Dinner by Dames, returns for it’s sixth installment at this sixth Eat Drink RI Festival. This female-driven dining experience brings together five of Rhode Island’s most talented chefs, Melissa Denmark of Gracie’s and Ellie’s Bakery, Jordan Goldsmith of Moonrose Farm, Maria Meza of El Rancho Grande, Ashley Vanasse of Easy Entertaining Inc. and Jessica Wood of Fire and Water Restaurant Group, for a multi-course dining event. For the 2017 Eat Drink RI Festival we’ve added guest Dames: Rebecca Lentrichia of Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel and Sarah Williams of Seven Stars Bakery.
To make the evening that much more special Jen Davis, of The Eddy, along with a group of RI’s top bartenders—Katie Masterson of The Boombox and Nicks on Broadway, Caitlin Murphy of Statesman Tavern, Elizabeth Sawtelle of Nicks on Broadway and Kayleigh Speck of Durk’s Bar•B•Q and The Grange—are creating cocktail pairings for each course with spirits very kindly provided by Origin Beverage Co. The icing on the cake of this spectacular evening is that this Dinner by Dames will be held at the brand new Skyline at Waterplace in downtown Providence.
In addition, the Festival Dinner by Dames coincides with this year’s Paint the Town RED to benefit AIDS Care Ocean State’s mission of providing quality housing, case management, medical and nursing care, and prevention to those affected by or at risk for HIV infection. Eat Drink RI President David Dadekian is a co-chair of the dining event and is proud to donate a portion of Dames proceeds to AIDS Care Ocean State.
The evening will begin with a 6 p.m. cocktail reception with welcome bites, then moving into a five-course dinner with cocktail pairings. The cost is $150 (all-inclusive).
Due to the limitations of the venue we are regrettably unable to accommodate any alternative menu/allergen requests other than a vegetarian option. Thank you in advance for your understanding on this matter.
