Flames of The Mediterranean: Featuring Chef Lior Lev Sercarz

All the way from his globally renowned spice brand La Boîte in New York City, the “Spice King” of the culinary world, Chef Lior Lev Sercarz will be joining an all-star team of One Off Hospitality chefs including Dylan Patel of avec, Greg Wade of Publican Quality Bread, and Chef & Partner Paul Kahan on Sunday, September 10th to host a spice-centric, live-fire dinner under the stars on the Bar avec rooftop.

Celebrating his newly launched cookbook, *“A Middle Eastern Pantry”,* Chef Lior Lev Sercarz, classically trained and world-traveled, has been making his signature spice blends at La Boîte since 2006. Sourcing from farmers and premium producers around the world, La Boîte’s unique, high-quality spice blends transform any dish from everyday into unforgettable, and the shop has become a destination for culinary enthusiasts, professional chefs, and home cooks alike.

Lior, who has been praised by *The New York Times* and *Food & Wine*, will be putting his talents to use as he and the chefs fire up the grill and prepare an exclusive three-course Mediterranean-inspired feast for guests to enjoy against stunning Chicago skyline views, eight stories up. Together with Kahan, Patel and Wade, Lior will present dishes including a tender hamachi crudo with tahini and pasha pine nuts, tangy chicken Fesenjan stew with pomegranate & walnuts, shrimp with spicy shatta and rose, and for dessert, mini Knafeh served with ice cream and grilled hawayej spiced pineapple.  Through the dinner, guests will also get an exclusive first taste of Spice Brothers, Lior’s high-quality focused fast-casual shawarma restaurant, set to open in Fall 2023 on St. Marks Place in Manhattan’s East Village.

Tickets to this flavor-packed feast are available on Tock, for $125/per person, excluding tax and gratuity. The price includes a personally signed copy of “*A Middle Eastern Pantry*” to bring a bit of spice back to your home kitchen. Wine pairings are available for an additional $55/per person. Seatings begin at 4 pm, with the last seating happening at 10 pm.
