Chefs From the Office and Vic & Angelo's to Face Off June 12 and 13 for Wine Dinners

The kitchen staff from sister restaurants the Office and Vic & Angelo's will face off in two four-course wine dinners in June. The friendly "battles" will pit Vic & Angelo's traditional fare against the Office's more modern take. Incidentally, the event represents a more amicable kind of showdown than either restaurant has enjoyed in recent months. 

The first dinner is Tuesday, June 12, at Vic & Angelo's Coal Oven in Palm Beach Gardens. The second dinner is Wednesday, June 13, at Vic & Angelo's Grand Italian Coal Oven Enoteca in Delray Beach. 

The event is akin to culinary battles like Chopped or Iron Chef, wherein contestants use the same star ingredient(s) in different ways in each round. Round one is scallops, with Vic & Angelo's to prepare a scallop gratin on the half shell while the Office plans to present a pan-seared scallop with roasted vegetables and pork belly. Other featured ingredients include duck, venison, and pomegranate. Each course (as presented by each team) will be paired with a wine.    

The four-course dinners are $95 per person, plus tax and tip. Space is limited, and reservations are required. Call 561-630-9899 for Palm Beach Gardens or 561-278-9570 for Delray Beach.
