State of Grace’s 2nd Anniversary is on the horizon and to celebrate its entry into the terrific twos, executive chef Bobby Matos and team are gearing up for a major culinary celebration on Sunday, October 29 from 4 to 7 pm. Kicking off the celebratory festivities is a high-intensity oyster shucking competition starring an array of guest chefs from Houston’s top restaurants.
The challenge will conclude with a shuck-off finale you don’t want to miss. Featured chefs include Terrence Gallivan (Pass & Provisions), Graham Laborde (Killen’s), Ryan Lachaine (Riel), Erin Feges (formerly Camerata; the forthcoming Feges BBQ), Alvin Schultz (Eat.Drink.EXPERIENCE! Underground Dinners), Richard Kaplan (Weights + Measures), Becky Masson (Fluff Bake Bar), and Joe Cervantez (Brennan’s of Houston). Be on the lookout for additional chefs to be added to the lineup. The $35 ticket will also treat guests to oysters and passed bites prepared by the State of Grace kitchen. Drinks (beer, wine, and specialty cocktails) will also be available for purchase.
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, proceeds from the anniversary fête will benefit Houston Food Bank to help further support its hurricane relief efforts. A silent auction showcasing exclusive sports memorabilia will be on site to help raise money for Harvey flood victims.
