The Legend Series One

Introducing The Legend Series

The Legend Series is a quarterly underground dining series based in Jacksonville, FL. It is a series of “renegade” dinner events that will include some of the Southeast’s best chefs as well as local artists, musicians and artisans.

The locations and themes of the events will remain secret until the day of the dinners and we have a list of outstanding, non-traditional venues throughout Northeast Florida where we intend to hold events. The venues, menus and artists are intended to shock, surprise, and impress!

The inaugural dinner will take place in late January 2012 at a location in Jacksonville. We have recruited the top chefs of Jacksonville to participate: Chef Brian Siebenschuh from Restaurant Orsay; Chef Scotty Schwartz from 29 South; Chef Tom Gray from Bistro Aix; Chef Sam Efron from Taverna; and the new executive chef of Chew Restaurant, Guy Ferri. This first event is intimate and invitation-only.

The event is sponsored by Vibrant Rioja and Intuition Ale Works. Guests are in for a special (surprise!) treat with regards to entertainment.

Our mission is to showcase the best of our area’s culinary, visual and musical arts while providing a shocking, exciting, one-of-a-kind experience for guests.
