...saw text below on bostonchefs.com. Any going? I have only been to one other event like this before at Pigalle and found it to be a "too many cooks in the kitchen" scenario: service was rushed, portions tiny, servers didn't know which courses were which, food was just "ok". I have no doubts Jamie Bissonnette will rock his dish and the bartending will be supreme but the other chefs? Thoughts?

"Sel de la Terre Celebrates a Year in the Back Bay
On Sunday, September 27th Sel de la Terre celebrates the one year anniversary of their Back Bay's location with an all-out gorge-fest featuring food and drink from some of Boston and Cambridge's best chefs and mixologists. Among the chefly participants: Dante de Magistris of dante and Il Casale, Will Gilson of Garden at the Cellar, Colin Lynch (Barbara Lynch Gruppo), Jamie Bissonnette of Toro and Coppa, Tony Susi of Sage, Jiho Kim of L'Espalier and host Louis DiBiccari, each of whom will be preparing and presenting a course featuring locally and sustainably raised ingredients. Masters of mixology, Kevin Martin from Eastern Standard and Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli from Craigie On Main will also be on hand to shake and/or stir up a couple of inventive libations and Westport Winery will be pouring some of their finest for those who'd prefer a little vino. And the best part about this birthday bash?
