Celebrity Chef Art Smith is opening his regionally-inspired restaurant, Art and Soul in The Liaison Capitol Hill, an Affinia Hotel, for a late-night Chefs Ball to celebrate President Obama’s inauguration with Washingtonians, visitors and the D.C. restaurant community.
Executive Chef Wes Morton will co-chair the Chefs Ball with Chef Smith, and their donations will benefit Common Threads, a non-profit organization that helps low-income children understand the importance of nutrition and physical well-being.
Five additional D.C. celebrity chefs will prepare late night bites for the event and proceeds will benefit their charities of choice.
