BIGA featuring Drew Bent from Lola 55 - Wood Fired Dinner Series
BIGA presents The Wood Fired Dinner Series
Dual wood ovens. Imported from Italy. It's one of the things that we take pride in at BIGA. And now, we will share our pride and joy with our friends and colleagues.
Our Wood Fired Dinner Series, will be a showcase of chefs, fire and ingredients. Over the next several months, our BIGA kitchen will team up with some of the most beloved chefs in the county to create a memorable dining experience for guests.
These prix fixe, four-course tasting menus are meant to highlight a chef, using our wood ovens and some of the best products we can procure locally, as well as wines from around the world.
This second dinner (December 14, 2017) will feature guest chef Drew Bent of Lola 55, which will soon be opening in East Village. After plying his trade at such beloved spots as Tender Greens, Puesto, Blind Lady and Carnitas Snack Shack, Drew will be working alongside our team to make delicious wood fired cuisine, using his impeccable technique, some of which was learned from his time at Noma - Tulum in the summer of 2017. We are excited to see what he produces using our unique wood fire!
