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.
Our second Wood Fired dinner (February 8, 2018) features Mike Arquines of The Lab Dining, a high-end private dinner service. You may know Mike from one of his other endeavors -- from his roasting at local and beloved Mostra Coffee, from his 100+ beer collaborations throughout the world, or from his dozens of pop up and collaboration dinners that he has contributed to in San Diego. His food is adventurous, ambitious, beautiful and delicious. Throw in some wood fire and WOW!
As a special bonus for only this dinner, Mike will be using his unparalleled connections in the craft beer world to provide a beer pairing for each course! Plus, there will be a limited release coconut cold brew coffee from Mostra. This dinner is not one that you want to miss out on! Stay tuned for the full menu, complete with beer pairings. *Please note that the beer pairing option will replace the wine pairing option for this dinner.
