Upscale dining destination Fifth Floor hosted a series of guest chefs last week for the holidays, each one cooking meals inspired by their heritage and culture. A brilliant idea with chefs as notable as Dominique Crenn of Atelier Crenn and Hoss Zare of Zare at Fly Trap. A portion of each of the $95 dinners went to the guest chef’s charity of choice.

Each menu intrigued, making it painful to choose one. In the end, scheduling decided the night I went and it was Brandon Jew of Bar Agricole.

Working closely with Fifth Floor chef David Bazirgan, a seven course feast unfolded with sommelier Amy Goldberger’s ever-thoughtful pairings (and infectious spirit). Here are a few highlights in photos from the night… and here’s hoping they’ll revive this tradition annually.
