Chefs to the Max will host ‘Sunday Supper’ from 6 to 9 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 28, at Celebrity Chef Kerry Simon’s new Carson Kitchen in Downtown Las Vegas.
The mini dine-around will feature a collaboration of neighborhood off-Strip chefs with 100 percent of proceeds going toward the recovery of Max Jacobson, a popular local food writer from Vegas Seven who was critically injured last December.
“Max Jacobson is, and always will be, an iconic part of the Las Vegas dining family,” said Cory Harwell, managing partner of Simon Hospitality Group. “Kerry and I are excited to host this benefit at our new Downtown restaurant and look forward to supporting Chefs to the Max.”
‘Sunday Supper,’ priced at $75 per person, will be hosted by Carson Kitchen Executive Chef Matt Andrews and feature the cuisine of celebrated local chefs including: Vic “Vegas” Moea of V’s Café; Luciano Pellegrini and José Aleman of Marche Bacchus French Bistro and Wine Shop; Ming See Woo of Fú Asian Kitchen inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino; Paloma Cuellar of La Comida; and Chris Palmeri of Naked City Pizza and Desnudo Tacos. O Face Doughnuts, which shares the old John E. Carson Hotel with Carson Kitchen, will also offer tasty treats.
“Max and his wife, Setu, are hopeful that they will be in Las Vegas in time to attend the dinner,” said Al Mancini, a longtime friend and colleague at Vegas Seven. “They are grateful to the local community for all of their support, both emotional and financial.”
Jacobson suffered traumatic brain injuries when he was struck by a car on Dec. 23 of last year while walking home from the gym. Since April, he has been undergoing rehabilitation in Denver and Omaha, where he has seen tremendous improvements. Jacobson is currently walking and dining out once again and his speech continues to improve.
‘Sunday Supper’ is sponsored by Southern Wine & Spirits.
