Kevin Gillespie inspires our imagination, inspires our palates, inspires aspiring chefs.
Now he has inspired original art.
“I feel honored that someone of the caliber of Christopher finds my work to be capable of inspiring a work of art,” Gillespie told us.
The two host a special dinner this Sunday at Woodfire Grill, where the dining room has stayed packed since Gillespie’s strong showing on the cooking reality show. He told us not long ago that while the restaurant probably could cram in a few extra diners, he prefers to eschew the easy profit to ensure every diner has a magnificent experience.
This Sunday’s event, with limited seating, is your shot at having the star chef feed you himself, then chitchat a bit in between courses. The reception starts at 6:30 p.m., with a four-course dinner to follow.
The event will also serve as the unveiling of Christopher M.’s body of work depicting Gillespie and his team at Woodfire, where he is executive chef.
The artist’s past works include similar pieces of Chef Kevin Rathbun. This Kevin, given all his tattoos, made an especially colorful subject.
To make reservations for Sunday’s dinner and art unveiling call Woodfire at 404-347-9055 . It’s $135 per person.
