A family-style “Garden Party” dinner in the Ridgway Bar & Grill Garden with menu created by
     Chef Tony Ridgway and paired with wines selected by Sukie Honeycutt for sixteen (16) people

According to the story, Tony Ridgway baked his first apple pie at age eight at his family’s orchard and farm in Pennsylvania. For nearly a half-century he has been Naples’ primary culinary innovator. His career began in 1971 with the purchase of Wurst Place and continued with The Chef’s Garden and Truffles, Plum’s Café and Villa Pescatore. Today he’s best known as the co-proprietor of Ridgway Bar & Grill as well as Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar and Tony’s Off Third, a full-service wine shop and bakery along with his business partner Sukie Honeycutt. His life as a chef is best documented in his newly released book, Kitchen Privileges: part memoir, part cookbook, and overall guide to purchasing, prepping and cooking the food of your dreams.

The winning bidder and 15 of his or her closest friends will enjoy an exceptional experience: a freewheeling, family-style feast in the garden of Ridgway Bar & Grill, with menu crafted by Tony and wines personally selected by Sukie. And if your life isn’t complete without your best friend, don’t fret: Ridgway’s garden is completely pet-friendly, and the staff greets canine visitors with treats and water bowls.
