LA BELLE RAVIN

An Art Directed Traveling Dinner Series


First of its kind dinner series, "La Belle Ravin" comprised of one art director & two chefs touring the United States.
A visual & culinary experience exciting its diners with unique menus & spaces based on geographic location.
From foraged centerpieces, hand-carved art menus, to experimental cuisine, each dinner unlike the other.
The series served as a bridge between cultures and landscapes, aimed to create memorable experiences and interactions.
To maintain the art of the shared meal and the importance of conversation, each guest was asked to uphold a strict no phone policy.
