Early arrivers to SFA's Oxford symposium may wish to book at table at one of the special dinners offered Thursday night, October 21.

PANAMANIAN FLIGHT. City Grocery and John Currence will host guest chef Adolfo Garcia, proprietor of three New Orleans restaurants, A Mano, La Boca, and Rio Mar. A native of New Orleans, his cuisine is influenced by the traditions of his Panamanian parents.

MISSISSIPPI MASALA. Vishwesh Bhatt of Snackbar will host guest chef Suvir Saran, proprietor of the restaurant Devi in New York City and author of American Masala.

Whether you choose Latin American cuisine or Indian fare, you'll be served a prix fixe multi-course menu for $40, exclusive of beverages, tax, and tip. Global South menus will be available all evening, so guests may make reservations with private groups, or choose to reserve a single seat and be paired at table with other SFA diners arriving around the same time. Guests may order from the house wine list, and the regular dinner menu will also be available all evening at each restaurant.

To make a reservation, call the restaurant directly. Seating will be limited, and advance reservations are required.
