Art + Food, Together at Last!
Calling all Paris-ites: Cur-Ate aims to marry arts both culinary and fine with "The Parisian Salon," an initiative between Ray's & Stark Bar (who run the LACMA restaurant concession) and Maite Gomez-Rejn (the dishy doyenne of culinary contextualists ArtBites). The Salon unveils the connection between food and art in a gallery setting, and just when it's time to get up and stretch at the end, executive chef Kris Morningstar (formerly at District and Mercantile, now of Ray's) presents a three-course meal based on the art you've just seen. France during centuries 17 through 20 will be the focus, of course, and a French wine menu by sommelier Paul Sanguinetti will be available at an additional cost. Cake, however, remains conspicuously absent from the menu. September's Cur-Ate Salon deals with American comfort food, but this one is going to be the more interesting and exotic one french fries notwithstanding. LACMA, 5905 Wilshire Blvd.; Mon.-Tues., July 9-10, 6:30 p.m.; $100. (323) 857-6000, lacma.org/event/cur-ate.
Mon., July 9, 6:30 p.m.; Tue., July 10, 6:30 p.m., 2012
