THREE LOCAL CHEFS TEAM UP TO FIGHT KIDS’ HUNGER
Avocado Grill set to host second annual Taste of the Nation Chefs’ Dinner
By popular demand, Executive Chef/Owner Julien Gremaud will once again host Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Chefs’ Dinner on July 18 at Avocado Grill. Last year’s sold-out event was proof positive that South Florida residents care deeply about addressing the issue of local food insecurity for kids and their families.
“We’re proud to host this summertime event to help generate even more awareness about the dire needs right here in our community as well as raise monies to help support local efforts. Chef Aaron Black from PB Catch in Palm Beach and Owner/Chef Eric Grutka from Ian’s Tropical Grill in Stuart will be joining me in the kitchen this year. It will be fun for us and delicious for our guests. We can’t wait for the event,” says Chef Gremaud whose leadership role in the event has expanded significantly over the years.
Tickets for the one-night-only “Chefs’ Collaboration for a Cause” July 18, 2017 event to benefit No Kid Hungry will be $95 each. There is limited seating and reservations must be made in advance. Guests will be treated to cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres followed by a five-course Caribbean-inspired feast with wine pairing.
For additional information, or to reserve your space, please contact Jennifer Martinez at email@example.com or by calling (561) 301-4998.

About Avocado Grill
Opened in downtown West Palm Beach in late 2014, Avocado Grill has become a staple on the dining scene. Led by Chef Julien Gremaud, the award-winning restaurant features small plates of seasonal, locavore-driven fare, specialty ceviche, a full raw bar and an expansive farm-to-table menu that includes fresh, house-made desserts.
In December 2016, Chef Gremaud won the Palm BeachFood and Wine Festival’s title for “Best Street Food”. The Chef’s entry was a Quail Leg Lollipop with truffle aioli, pistachio crust, cherry chutney, and pickled beech mushroom.
Over the restaurant’s few years in business, the talented chef and his staff have accumulated an array of awards recognizing the high quality and uniqueness of their delectable offerings including: Florida Trend Magazine’s Golden Spoon award for “Best New Restaurant for 2015”; 2014, 2015, & 2016 “Open Table Diners’ Choice” award winner, 2014 “New Times Reader’s Choice Best New Restaurant in Palm Beach County”, and USA Today’s 10 Best.
