Art as Entertainment

Vision for Art á la Carte 2016 Evening

Drawing on the inspiration of “Outstanding in the Field,” Art á la Carte 2016 will have its own special twists. Begin your evening with cocktails in The Gallery, dine under the stars with LeBauer Park & Center City Park as our backdrop and end your evening with an exclusive auction. Infused with fresh elegance and sophistication, Art á la Carte will be unlike any other event, celebrating the resurgence of the Cultural District and the steadfast importance of GreenHill. Art á la Carte will define Art as Entertainment for years to come.


2016 Guest Chef Vivian Howard

Chef & the Farmer and A Chef's Life

James Beard Nominee Vivian Howard opened Chef & the Farmer with her husband in 2006. Their goal for the restaurant was to support local farms, enrich the community, preserve and refine southern foodways and work to become one of the best restaurants in the Southeast. Now a AAA Four Diamond awardee, Vivian and Chef & the Farmer continue to serve the best cuisine found in our state. With our guest chef we will indulge in the finest seasonal foods available, paired exquisitely with hand-picked selections from the Sonoma Coast's Banshee Wines, set with locally crafted linens and tableware.
