Oh hey MORE FEAST NEWS. Bon Appétit headquarters leaks the news that NYC chef Anita Lo (owner of Greenwich Village's Annisa and co-founder of the Rickshaw Dumpling Bar) will visit the upcoming Feast Portland food festival, pulling double-duty. The Top Chef Master will team with Aviary's Sarah Pliner, Jasper Shen, and Kat Whitehead for a dinner at the NE Alberta restaurant, as well as participate in the Andy Ricker-curated "Night Market."
The Lo confirmation caps a week of trickled–out reveals by Feast organizers: On Wednesday, Feasters confirmed that onetime Portland chef Matt Lightner would team with Husk's Sean Brock for a dinner; yesterday, news of Gabrielle Hamilton's upcoming appearance surfaced. The full lineup reveal (as well as the start of online ticket sales) is expected to drop on Tuesday, May 22. Stay tuned.
