Join ten of the Twin Cities’ top chefs at Minnesota Monthly’s newest event, Twin Cities Table, a five night dinner series benefiting Open Arms of Minnesota. Throughout the last week of January, guests will enjoy a social hour, followed by a one-of-a-kind dinner of four savory courses, dessert, and expert wine pairings, with live entertainment provided by the Dakota. Custom menus, designed with Twin Cities’ foodies in mind, will be thoughtfully prepared by a different duo of chefs each evening.
