Chef David Barzelay will host this private Inside Access from Chase event at his acclaimed Lazy Bear restaurant. Lazy Bear’s playful yet sophisticated space references Chef Barzelay’s love of vintage American food experiences with nostalgic touches, boy scout-era lodging décor, rustic materials, vintage glassware and antique crystal decanters, and quirky throw-back decorations.
The special evening will begin with Lazy Bear’s signature seasonal punch and snack service upstairs on the mezzanine in the living room. Guests will then be seated on the main floor at four communal tables for a seasonal multi-course “dinner party” tasting menu. An array of beverages designed to complement the flavors of the menu including wines, cocktails and beer will be served. As a special inclusion, Chef Barzelay will create a dish exclusive to this Inside Access from Chase evening and share his inspirations for the flavors. Each course will be introduced by members of the Lazy Bear team.
Thanks to the unique format and open-kitchen setup, guests will be encouraged to approach the kitchen to take photos and chat with Chef Barzelay as each course is being prepared. Following dinner, Chef Barzelay will be available for guest photos.
Chef David Barzelay channeled his self-taught, passion-driven culinary skills into a thriving underground dinner party called Lazy Bear, ultimately culminating in the opening of his two-Michelin-starred restaurant by the same name. Chef Barzelay was named a Food & Wine Best New Chef in 2016, and Lazy Bear has been listed as one of Bon Appetit’s Best New Restaurants, San Francisco Chronicle’s Top 100 Restaurants, and a James Beard Awards Semifinalist for Best New Restaurant.
