The Rise of Fast Casual Food

March 1, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In Conversation with Cincinnati Magazine: A 50th Anniversary Talk Series

The Rise of Fast Casual Food








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.
