Save the date – Oyster Fest!
with guest Chef Alex Lira
Originally from Richmond, Virginia, Lira’s culinary escapades began while hanging out with hungry friends demanding party snacks. Somewhere between late night omelets and a culinary degree, he decided he was bound for chefdom and decided to hone his culinary skills in NYC. After six years in the city, Charleston was calling. Lira’s salty-sweet personality found a perfect setting in the Lowcountry. He took the helm at The Lot in 2013 before opening Bar Normandy, his own approachable, industry-driven wine bar. Under Lira’s leadership, Bar Normandy was named one of the best new restaurants in the U.S. by Bon Appetit. In 2017, Lira was nominated for Best Chef Southeast by the James Beard Foundation.
He will fly in from his home in Charleston, South Carolina just to host Oyster Fest at Teuonic! He is still working on the menu, so more info to come. For now, just mark May 25th on your calendar and make sure to make this epic event.
