Imagine yourself seated at an elegant dining table that stretches as far as the eye can see. Cafe lights twinkle overhead, shimmering across the vibrant tile mural that serves as the backdrop of what is sure to be an unforgettable evening. It is the perfect setting for Long Table at the Station, a meticulously-planned, six-course meal that features locally sourced ingredients thoughtfully paired with wine and craft beer.
Realize Bradenton, the nonprofit behind Long Table at the Station, has created this experience with a purpose, fusing two things that make Bradenton a truly unique destination—local food and public art.
Bradenton boasts an extensive collection of high-quality public art, as well as countless chef-owned restaurants. Long Table at the Station celebrates these attributes by featuring six award-winning, local chefs preparing dishes based on inspiration from area produce and food products.
Long Table at the Station is more than just an elegant dining experience. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Bradenton Farmers’ Market for the 2017–2018 season, allowing the market to expand educational activities for children and families, and cooking demonstrations by local chefs.
“I am excited to partner with Realize Bradenton and the chefs from the Village of the Arts,” said Paul Mattison, chef and proprietor of Mattison’s City Grille Bradenton Riverwalk. “The cooperation between chef-owned restaurants in support of the Bradenton Farmers’ Market is an important cause that will have long lasting benefits.”
