The event at The District begins at six o’clock. For reservations, please call Gloria Barke at (818) 756-1260. Tickets are $135. All proceeds will support C-CAP Los Angeles’ local programs. Space is limited. The District is located at 8722 Third Street, Los Angeles and the dinner will take place in the Feng Shui room. Valet parking will be available.
The event is organized by Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) Los Angeles, dinner guests will have the opportunity to step through century-old doors of this stunning restaurant and be transported to Vietnam’s seductive French Colonial era evoking romantic Hoi An near the South China Sea. The innovative project is a first for Hannah, whose family’s restaurant portfolio includes the renowned Crustacean, Beverly Hills. The District’s creative nuanced cuisine, rooted in Vietnam’s regional food traditions, is suffused with California’s farm fresh attitude: carefully sourced organic meats and the finest produce, all delicately seasoned with fresh herbs and Asian spices. Diners will get a firsthand account of Hannah’s personal story of a family who escaped their homeland to build a restaurant empire in the United States.
