Cincinnati Magazine’s Dining Editor Joanne Drilling moderates a panel discussion aimed at uncovering the realities of traditional fine dining versus fast-casual, the concept made popular by Chipotle.
Joining Joanne will be Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson, James Beard award winner, former Iron Chef, and co-owner of Pizzeria Locale, a new fast-casual concept that is testing the market in Kenwood and Mason.
Joe and John Lanni, longtime owners of Currito and multiple OTR fast-casual chains (Bakersfield and The Eagle), will also share their experience in expanding into the upscale market with Maplewood Kitchen and Bar.
A food & wine reception follows. Tickets are $20 for Mercantile Library members; $25 for non-members.
