Several local chefs are coming together to deliver an epic night out.
The Carriage House is hosting its fourth annual "City of Gastronomy Downtown Chef's Table Dinner" at 5:30 - 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27.
The dinner is meant showcase the creative culinary and mixology talents that have grown inside some of downtown Tucson’s most successful restaurants — all while supporting the non-profit organizations Tu Nidito and the Fox Tucson Theatre.
