Salon dinners

Art of Food — Produced by Monica Rogozinski

Located in the South Kensington Arts District, Front & Palmer is the home to Feast Your Eyes Catering owned by Lynn Buono and her husband Skip Schwarzman. Feast Your Eyes has been in business for 34 years, originally based in Northern Liberties and moving to their current location 13 years ago, they have been perfecting their food centered, customized approach to catering ever since.

Starting in 2004 Feast Your Eyes threw their own party where they chose the food, invited local artists, and then encouraged guests to donate to the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami victims. From the success of that party came the Salon Dinners, a party thrown every winter featuring a cultural mash-up of music, art, and food with proceeds donated to a local charity of their choice. This month, Art of Food will be visiting Feast Your Eyes catering company at Front & Palmer to see new meals, new people, and new cultures during their winter Salon Dinners. The Bollywood themed event on February 7th featured authentic Indian food and Bollywood dancing. On March 15, 2014 will be Big Night, offering a lavish Italian dinner, entertainment from Heath Allen, a cash bar, and glass art installation from New Jersey’s WheatonArts Glassblowers.
