7:00pm: Screening of For Grace (2015; US; NR; 1h32m)
The film follows the building of Grace from concrete box to its opening night, showing as few films have before the exacting standards required in luxury dining. It also revisits Chef Curtis Duffy's turbulent childhood: How a middle school home economics teacher recognized cooking talent in a troubled teenager, how an unimaginable tragedy made Duffy seek refuge in the kitchen, and how cooking ultimately exacted a price. A story about food, family, balance and sacrifice.
