East LA Meets Napa Returns to L.A. Live With Several Michelin Starred Chefs

On Friday, July 26, in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, East LA Meets Napa returns to L.A. Live bringing over 100 top LA chefs, restauranteurs, award winning Napa wine-producers, and premium spirit distributors. We’ve covered the food and wine festival several times over the past few years and it has undoubtedly become our favorite festival in the city. But what separates the festival this year is the inaugural Michelin Guide California has been revealed and the highly anticipated list features several of this year’s AltaMed Food Wine Festival participants! Get your tickets, follow AltaMed Food on Wine on Instagram, and read on for more info on this annual culinary bash.

Named the “Premier Latino wine and food event in the United States” by celebrity chefs from The Food Network, Bravo and Top Chef, the festival is AltaMed’s premier fundraising event, so in addition to enjoying the generous, seemingly never-ending, and incredibly diverse food and wine tastings, your admission is also supporting AltaMed’s mission to increase access to comprehensive health and human services, further cementing their 50-year commitment to providing Quality Care Without Exception in Los Angeles and Orange counties.

TBT to this yummy spread from @gloriashp! @gloriashp's philosophy is that "food is not just nourishment for the body, it’s nourishment for the soul", and we could not agree more! We're thrilled to have Chef Juan Sanjuan III back this year at East LA Meets Napa on July 26! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ AltMedFoodWine.org gloriashp.com #AltaMedFoodWineFestival #OCMeetsNapa #ELAMN #LAFoodie #OCFoodie #FoodFestival #WineFestival #FoodWineFestival #AltaMedFoodWine

Now in its fourteenth year, East LA Meets Napa has perfected the art of the food festival. While there is always a jam packed crowd of 2,000+, you won’t find the long and impossible lines, the small pours, or the sold out dishes that plague so many festivals. East LA Meets Napa is truly an event, and the organizers, chefs, and wineries have all done the preparation to make sure the night is an excellent one. And did I mention there is live music throughout the evening? The headliners this year are the Spanish Harlem Orchestra, the three-time Grammy® winning Salsa and Latin Jazz band that sets the gold standard for excellence in authentic, New York style, hard core salsa.
