Chef Roy Villacrusis to Step in as Guest Chef for Supper Club in April

South Florida's newest supper club is already off to a fine start. The Traveling Plate held its first event Wednesday night and served 80 people at Allied Kitchen & Bath. It also -- and perhaps more importantly -- raised $2,500 for ARC Broward Culinary Institute.

And the next event is shaping up to be even more impressive.

On April 5, the Traveling Plate will set up in the Girls' Club Collection gallery in downtown Fort Lauderdale, a fairly amazing venue for a dinner club. The best part, though, is that award-winning Roy Villacrusis will be the guest chef for the night.

Villacrusis agreed this week to help craft the menu, prepare the meal, and be on hand

at the event. "I'll even help with the cleanup," Villacrusis joked (at least, we think he was joking).


Plate Charlie is helping to sponsor the event by kicking in a bit of

cash. Villacrusis is also contacting vendors to see if

they'd donate ingredients.

The event is capped at just 30 spots. Check the Traveling Plate's Facebook page for updates to see when tickets are available.
