Phoenix a bit too far for you to get pizza? You’re in luck! We’ve got Chef Bianco cooking in house, **THIS MONDAY (7/20)**, for our SECOND GRAIN DINNER. It’s a special event that is not to be missed! See the full details below.

On Monday, July 20th, Chef Bruce Kalman will be teaming up with Chris Bianco from the seminal Pizzeria Bianco in Phoenix for a family-style, charitable dinner at Union Restaurant that pays tribute to the humble grain.
Guests of the dinner, which will commence at 6:30 pm for the evening’s single seating, will enjoy a shared meal of dishes that celebrate the bounty of California ingredients, including different grains that are locally-sourced and milled from Grist & Toll. The menu, which will be dictated by ingredients and produce procured that day, will be supplemented with wine pairings from Union’s Wine Director George Pitsironis.
Following the family-style feast, attendees will watch a partial screening of “The Grain Divide,” a documentary that explores and responds to growing concerns about modern wheat and grains amidst a landscape where the American staple has been villainized. A free link to the full documentary will be provided for diners to watch after the meal.
Proceeds from the $200 per person dinner will go toward Pasadena Community Gardens to help build the non-profit’s next garden.
