The night was memorable because of our guests. Friends, old and new, participated in the dining experience. Browse the photos of our guests' experience, and then see below for the food and art pairings.
Local artist, Brent Holland of Studio Holland Art and French Master Chef, David Baruthio of BARU 66, collaborated on an experience Des Moines never saw before. Chef Baruthio created a ‘one night only,' three-course, Mediterranean meal at Bistro Nomad, that was inspired by Holland's artwork, which is architectural in nature and exhibited at the pop-up art gallery in the restaurant. Local jazz favorites John Krantz and Steve Charlson performed jazz ballads.
You can still view that artwork which remains on display at Bistro Nomad. Let us know what you think about it.
