Wine Room

Neither Chef Metzger nor his restaurant are strangers to these types of collaborations. Earlier this month they hosted the off hook Championship Round of the Avocado Madness!!

Exciting collaborations! Chefs going above and beyond donating time, product, and a lot of heart! All of which is reflected in each of the dishes they turn out! So to have the opportunity to attend, is truly awesome.

Chef Kurt

“It’s always interesting to bring a group of talented chefs together and see what magic comes from such a collaboration,” said Chef Kurt Metzger, Owner and Executive Chef of Kitchen 4140. “Being a chef’s whim style event, this dinner will feature an exciting element of suspense as the courses are revealed throughout the evening.”
