Six Of Chile’s Best Unite For Charity This Saturday At Santiago’s Vega Central (ES)

By Patrick Hieger


This Saturday, what will undoubtedly go down as one of the most epic meals ever created in Chile will take place at Santiago’s Vega Central, when six of the country’s leading restaurants come together for one great cause.  Before we say anything else, we’ll say this:  get your tickets now, because this is going to sell out fast.

The kitchens from 99, Boragó, Alegre, Ambrosia, Osaka, and D.O., which includes chefs and judges from Top Chef, the recipient of a Michelin Star, and three of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants, are coming together for a one-afternoon-only meal to support the Escuela Básica Santa Teresa de Carmelo.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Proceeds from the event will go to help the school build a garden, giving students healthier, more nutritious meals.  As diners, those in attendance will take part in a never-before-seen lineup of the best cooks in Chile.  No, really.  Get those tickets.

In celebration of their second appearance on the Latin America’s 50 Best awards, Alto chef Carlos Garcia paid homage to his team in a special way, as Legos.  Alto currently sits at #28 on the list and is ranked as the best restaurant in Venezuela. Apparently they’ve all been drinking.
