CANCELED MCA Dinner Society with Chef Elise Wiggins of Cattivella

Dinner Society is back and tastier than ever (if that's even possible). Saturday, March 28, Chef Elise Wiggins of Cattivella, will grace our cafe as she serves a full-on Italian feast. Known for her creative menus and exciting ingredients, you can expect culinary innovation that's sure to inspire.

This pop-up rooftop dinner event will combine culinary artistry with visual arts to create a truly intimate, dare we say magical, experience.

On arrival, you will be greeted with a glass of prosecco and an amuse-bouche to set the mood for the night ahead. Next, you will receive an exclusive tour of the Francesca Woodman: Portrait of a Reputation exhibition, gaining insight into the works on view. From there, you will be seated in our cafe and our guest chef will prepare a four-course meal and walk you through each course of her creation.

You will be surrounded by soft music, delicious food, meaningful conversation, and thoughtful wine pairings prepared by our wildly talented MCA Cafe & Bar staff. While this is a sophisticated gathering, please feel no shame as you scrape up every last crumb and savor the meal to the fullest.

Upon departure, expect to leave full (both in the stomach and heart) plus, you'll receive a little take-home treat.

$135 per seat. Seats are very limited. Tickets include the welcome prosecco drink, an amuse-bouche, a four-course dinner with wine pairings and dessert, and a take-home treat. A vegetarian option will be available (no fish or meat), but we are not able to accommodate other dietary restrictions.
