Chefs Bring Exciting Culinary Concept to Cleveland

If you have not heard of "Ben and Greg's Renegade Lunch Project" then you are missing out. This culinary creation from Chefs Greg MacLaren and Ben Bebenroth from Marigold Catering and Spice of Life Catering Co. brings Clevelanders an exciting first-come first-served gourmet lunch, complete with linens and china, to 20 random unsuspecting diners in a crowded Cleveland building or outdoor area. Each month, the location and time are unknown to the public. But you can get a sneak peek by checking out their blog! These lunches will take place once a month, with each event benefiting a different local charity. The first lunch, held in January at the Galleria, raised money for the Cleveland Foodbank. The March event just took place on the 24th at Tower City, and raised over $2,300 for the Rape Crisis Center! As a participant of the first lunch, this project is worth following and you should try to attend one of these fabulous lunches. Part performance art, part community outreach, this is definitely worth checking out!
