Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar Executive Chef Roger Mawill share the line with a former colleague when he welcomes Melissa Rodriguez, Chef/Partner of New York City’s Michelin-starred Del Posto to Vancouver for an exclusive MICHELIN on the Road™ dinner on Thursday, June 27 at 6:30 p.m.
The evening features a cocktail-and-canapé reception and a six-course collaborative menu that showcases the unique culinary talents of both Ma and Rodriguez, with wine pairings by Jackson Family Wines. Tickets to the one-night-only event are available for $225 per person plus tax and gratuity and may be purchased online at exploretock.com/
Both chefs have enjoyed a long association that dates back to the five years they spent honing their skills at celebrated chef Daniel Boulud’s eponymous two-Michelin-starred restaurant in New York beginning in 2006. Ma moved on to open several more Boulud-branded outposts before returning to his hometown of Vancouver in 2014 to launch Boulevard as Chef de Cuisine. In 2018, he was promoted to Executive Chef and recently led the restaurant to consecutive gold medals for Best Upscale and Best Seafood at the 2019 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards and the No. 31 ranking on the prestigious 2019 list of Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants.
Rodriguez joined the team at Del Posto in 2011 and six years later stepped into the role of Executive Chef, becoming the first woman at the helm of a restaurant awarded four stars by the New York Times. More recently, Rodriguez was promoted to Chef/Partner and Del Posto — which she co-owns with renowned restaurateurs Lidia and Joe Bastianich — earned a coveted Michelin Star for 2019, with the dining guide calling her dishes “gorgeously crafted … it is her playful interpretation of Italian cuisine that makes this kitchen creative.”
“It’s an honour to welcome a friend and culinary talent like Melissa, who is not just an accomplished chef in her own right but also a role model and mentor for so many up-and-coming cooks and chefs,” said Ma. “We’re excited to cook together once again and pull out all the stops to present a one-of-a-kind dining experience.”
MICHELIN on the Road™ events bring together the greatest chefs from around the globe to combine their unique talents and host inspired, collaborative events in restaurants and unexpected settings. Ma and Rodriguez’s collaboration is only the third MICHELIN on the Road™ dinner to be held in Vancouver and follows a pair of sold-out events in 2018.
A limited number of tickets to the exclusive MICHELIN on the Road™ collaborative dinner featuring chefs Roger Ma and Melissa Rodriguez on Thursday, June 27 are available for $225 per person plus tax and gratuity. Tickets may be purchased online at exploretock.com/
