Inspired by the spirit of Thanksgiving, eight of San Diego’s renowned chefs are inviting you to dinner
at Provisional Kitchen, Cafe and Mercantile on Wednesday, Nov. 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.!

The Chefsgiving meal will include a creative holiday dish from each chef – from turkey and sides to delicious desserts – prepared in the restaurant’s open kitchen. Dinner will be served family-style with complementary Cambria wines at communal tables. You’ll get a chance to chat with the chefs as food critic, writer and television personality Troy Johnson hosts the evening.


Tickets are $145* per person and include a $25 donation to the San Diego Food Bank, which will provide 125 meals to families in need this holiday season.
