In this unique event, Atlanta’s top chefs compete inside a boxing ring. Ringside judges score their culinary concoctions on taste, presentation and creativity. Each team picks a favorite charity to highlight. Chef Tony’s team selected Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency in hopes of building awareness and financial support for an organization that helps break the cycle of homelessness. Thank you! And nice work, all.

Main Course: Peppercorn seared beef tenderloin with sauteed Brussels sprouts and baby carrots.

Even if you missed Tuesday’s competition, you can still enjoy Chef Tony’s work every Sunday at Cafe 458. Proceeds from our public Sunday Brunch (including tips) support ACSS programs during the week to empower homeless individuals to become self sufficient, productive and charitable members of our community.
