The world’s best baseball players are usually the headliners at Fenway Park, but come May 15, the area’s best chefs will be Lyric Little Bandbox’s main attraction.
Boston Bites Back (BBB) will bring 100 of Boston’s top chefs together to raise $1 million for The One Fund, led by celebrity chefs Ken Oringer and Ming Tsai, the Red Sox, Governor Deval Patrick, Mayor Thomas Menino and ARAMARK.
“BBB is an opportunity for the city to join as one and acknowledge our strength as a community,” said Oringer, owner of Clio, Toro, Coppa and Uni. “Nothing speaks more to our collective resolve than an evening of hospitality, unity and hometown pride in one of the most iconic venues in Boston — Fenway Park.”
“Food is our common ground, a universal experience,” said Tsai, owner of Blue Ginger and Blue Dragon. “This event is an occasion for Bostonians to reconnect over food, mingle with chefs and honor our city’s inspiring resilience. It’s an opportunity for Bostonians to literally ‘bite’ back.”
From 6-10 p.m. on May 15 at Fenway, chefs will be cooking and serving guests from behind concession stands as well as at tables throughout the Big Concourse and the Budweiser deck. Only 5,000 general access tickets will be sold at $200 each. There will also be 200 VIP tickets at $1,000 each, allowing additional access to an intimate and exclusive gathering in Fenway’s EMC Club.
An online auction leading up to the event will feature many one-of-a-kind packages including unique dining experiences from Oringer and Tsai and personal shopping with fashion expert Gretta Monahan.
