A couple of new names have been added to the Memorial Day Chefs’ fishing trip since we announced it so I thought I’d post a new revised list and some photographs to give you a better idea about what to expect.
Chef Michael Cimarusti and Donato Poto – Providence
Chef Neal Fraser Grace
Chef Josiah Citrin Melisse
Chef Michael Voltaggio and Adam Cole Langham Pasadena
Chef Ben Ford Ford’s Filling Station
Chef David Lefevre Water Grill
Chef Brian Moyers BLT
Chef Alain Giraud Anisette
Chef Andrea Cavaliere Cecconi’s
The Big Cheese himself Dave Dahni Grilled Cheese Truck
Michael and Marco Pietroiacovo Truffle Brothers
Craig Min LA Mill
Matthew Biancaniello Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel resident mixologist
Truffle sliders, gourmet grilled mac n cheese sandwiches, the best chocolate chip cookies from Providence, LA Mill iced coffee and Dark and Stormy cocktails were highlights of last year’s trips… this year I’ve heard talk of some great breakfast favorites, truffle eggs over easy on the griddle anyone? Or perhaps you’re more into the famous Cheesy Mac and Rib and some strong LA Mill coffee to wake us. And finally I come to the fresh farmers’ market cocktails – including an Italian Waltz with blood orange, a Roquette and Arugula Gimlet, Mother Mary – a 17 step Bloody Mary or even Nitro Harry’s Berries Mimosas from Chef Voltaggio… it’s cocktail time somewhere in the world right?
If you would like to fish, eat and drink with this esteemed bunch you may still be able to hook a VIP ticket ($99) at Brown Paper Tickets but you better be quick for tight lines.

According to Chef Cimarusti it’s unlucky.
