|Indulge at Fig|
At the ultra-luxe Indulge dinner ($350), Fig chef Ray Garcia hosts a lavish sit-down feast with several local SaMo chefs - Josiah Citrin (Melisse), Raphael Lunetta (JiRaffe) and Joe Miller (Bar Pintxo, Joe's) - at the Fairmont Hotel restaurant. This is the first time all four are cooking together under the same roof, and the only time you can taste all of their food in one night without table hopping around town. Summer at the Shore ($150) casts a wider net, pulling in Nyesha Arrington (Wilshire), Carlos Kuramoto (Michael's) and Ann Gentry (Real Food Daily) among others, plus visiting host-chef Graham Elliot, for a strolling reception under that beautiful ancient fig tree.
Both events take place on August 10 at the hotel, so you can either pick and choose which to attend, or combine the two for $450. Really, if you're going to throw down that kind of cash for Indulge, you might as well indulge.
