Redbird, Chef Fraser's newest LA restaurant, is located on the first floor of the rectory building of the beautiful and historic Vibiana Cathedral. The Vibiana Cathedral opened its doors in 1876 and was L.A.'s first Archdiocese Catholic cathedral. The rectory building was then built later in the 1930s.
Chef Neal Fraser will host this special private evening alongside his wife and business partner, Amy Knoll Fraser. Your Inside Access evening will begin with a reception in Redbird's lounge which features mid-century furniture and a striking ceiling painted by designer Guerin Swing with motifs from the cathedral. The reception will highlight Chef Fraser's "kickshaws," or small snack bites. Mixologist Tobin Shea will create a specialty cocktail for this evening and feature additional handcrafted cocktails from the current menu.
Following the reception, guests will be escorted into the Redbird dining room which features an open view of the sky above through the retractable roof. Enjoy a five-course New American dinner specially curated by Chef Neal Fraser and paired with wines. Chef Fraser will also prepare and plate one course at the Wood fire/Rotisserie grill in the dining room as guests watch.
Chef Neal Fraser has worked alongside Chefs Wolfgang Puck, Thomas Keller and David Burke. He battled Iron Chef Cat Cora in 2006 on Food Network's widely popular series "Iron Chef America" and became the first California chef to win the culinary competition. Chef Fraser most recently appeared on Bravo TV's Season 5 of "Top Chef Masters" and was victorious on the Esquire Network's "Knife Fight."
Cardmembers will have an opportunity to take photos with Chef Neal Fraser and Amy Knoll Fraser and hear first-hand about their life during a casual question and answer session.
