Chefs Cycle Dinner at Brine

Chef David Bazirgan of Bambara Kitchen & Bar is trading in his apron for bike shorts come May when he bikes 300 miles across three days in Santa Rosa, CA. Chefs Cycle is a fundraising sporting event organized by No Kid Hungry as an effort to raise $2 million (to give perspective, that’s 20 million meals for kids needing hunger relief!), and you can help show your support on Sunday, May 5th through a dinner at Brine Oyster Bar in Newburyport. Bazirgan is returning to his old stomping grounds where he grew up to create a special four-course menu filled with fresh, local ingredients (and a fair share of seafood). Tickets are $55 each with all net proceeds from the feast going to Chefs Cycle directly. Reservations are required; call 978.358.8479 to make yours. Want to show your love, but can’t attend the dinner? You can donate to Bazirgan’s cause here.
