There will be some heavy-hitters at this Harvest Feast celebration. Not only will chef Damien Watel of Bistro Vatel join the festivities, but peers Bruce Auden (seven-time James Beard Foundation Award nominee and chef-owner of Biga on the Banks) and Mark Bliss (who helmed Silo Elevated Cuisine before opening Bliss in Southtown) will also be joining the feast.

Always one to impress, Russ likes to bring it during most events. A tiny soft-shell crawfish b├íhn mi here, a sausage corndog there, a pork belly taco with fried kale are all just samples of what he's done in the past. We're ready to get wowed again.

Another showboat! But really, chef Jeff White's inventive bites usually take the cake at these events. He's one to run out quickly, too, as the crowd latches on to whatever bite he's making that day be it Spam burgers, corned beef pastrami sandwiches or killer ceviche. Wednesday's menu will include Vietnamese baby backs with watermelon, smoked yogurt and hearts of palm.
