February 9th, 2017 – Three culinary heavy hitters joined forces to create a one-of-a-kind meal at San Diego’s Ironside Fish & Oyster.

Chef powerhouses included Matt Orlando, Chef/Owner of AMASS in Copenhagen; Michelin-starred Daniel Burns, Chef/Partner at Tørst and Luksus in Brooklyn, NY; and Philip Esteban, Head of R&D at Consortium Holdings in San Diego, CA.

The sold out prix fixe pop-up dinner featured nine courses each paired with beers by Abnormal Beer Co. head brewer, Derek Gallanosa in collaboration with former Monkey Paw brewer Cosimo Sorrentino.

Guests caught glimpses of the chefs at work while seating on community style tables overlooking Ironside’s unique open kitchen. Courses all showcased the intricate skills and creativity of these three masterminds, while still encompassing the freshest ingredients of the season. Photos by Arlene Ibarra.
