Esters Will Also Host Guest Chef Event on April 25
In celebration of Earth Day, Co-Owner/Rustic Canyon Family Wine Director Kathryn Coker and her team are hosting an outdoor regenerative wine fair on Saturday, April 22, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the parklet. The event will feature planet-friendly winemakers who practice regenerative farming in the vineyard, including renowned sommelier, writer & winemaker Raj Parr, Centralas owner, vintner & Organic Wine Podcast host Adam Huss, Camins 2 Dreams’ Tara Gomez & Mireia Taribo, and more.
Guests can enjoy wine tastings and meet the winemakers, and tickets are available for $40/person via Resy. A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to OOM (Our Only Mission—Earth), a startup that creates a new reuse economy to eliminate single-use packaging waste in our everyday consumer goods, like wine bottles.
On Tuesday, April 25, Esters is hosting a pop-up event as part of its ongoing Guest Chef Series. James Beard Award-winning and critically-acclaimed Chef Tony Messina, who recently moved from Boston to LA to open The Surf Clam, will be taking over Esters’ “little kitchen that could” from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Chef Tony will be preparing a playful à la carte menu that blends Japanese and Chinese influences with New England cuisine, all while showcasing California’s stunning seasonal produce and seafood. Sommelier Randall Middleton will be pairing some lovely wines too. Reservations are highly recommended via Resy, but walk-ins are also welcome at the bar.
