All-Star Chef Classic will feature two venues at L.A.

Restaurant Stadium will host the SOLD OUT “French Masters Dinner” and premiere “All-Star Lunch” for engaging dining experiences as well as play a part in the “Grill and Chill” and “Savor the Season” events for presentations and demonstrations.

The second venue, Chefs' Tasting Arena, is designed to complement the Restaurant Stadium and will feature a more expansive layout for tastings, showcases and celebrations, especially at the “Grill and Chill” and “Savor the Season” events, providing guests with access to meet their favorite chefs and taste multi-cultural cuisines.
