BIGA featuring Nick Brune – Wood Fired Dinner Series

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.

Nick Brune, a native of Louisiana, has been using his specialized cooking technique since he was young.  This well respected chef, for our fourth installment (April 12, 2018) of the Dinner Series, has cooked with some of the biggest names in the restaurant world, and has also cooked for some of the most well known people in the world.  As the founder of renown catering company Eco Caters, Nick has also been at the forefront of the trend of farm to table (although he would never call it that) and is one of the best beer pairing chefs in the city.  We have seen what he does with fire.  Wait til you taste what he does with it.
