Chef Josh Oakley of the Smiling Bison joins chef Nat Russell of the Tennessee Truffle for this culinary flight of fancy in trendier-by-the-week Sanford. The Bison is known for its refined takes on pub grub like poutine and pizza, whereas Russell left his longtime post as chef of the traditional Café de France to open his temple to all foods Southern. The two of them will no doubt mesh well – we predict plenty of bacon, biscuits and butter – and to top it all off, they’ll be joined new Sanford bar Bitters & Brass, who will serve low-alcohol cocktails during the hors d’oeuvre hour. Tickets must be pre-paid – no late reservations.
7-10 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 22 | The Smiling Bison, 107 S. Magnolia Ave., Sanford | 407-915-6086 | smilingbison.com
