Artists' Table includes a farm-to-table meal prepared by local chef and restaurateur Jason Weiner and features an intimate presentation by Artists-in-Residence NoodleRice.
Chef Jason Weiner boasts extensive experience at many of the country’s top kitchens. Since 2001, he has served as executive chef and proprietor of Almond restaurant which opened its first location in Bridgehampton, New York, followed shortly thereafter by a second Almond outpost in Manhattan’s Flatiron District in 2008 and L&W Oyster Company in 2012. In June 2016, Weiner and his business partner opened Zigmund’s Bar located at 203 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike in Bridgehampton, NY.
NoodleRice works at the intersection of film/video and live performance. First conceived as a film studio by Yao Zhang and Liang Guo in 2008 as students at the Beijing Film Academy, they went on to expand their work into performance art and theater during their MFA years at California Institute of the Arts. NoodleRice’s performance piece My Favorite Food has been shown across the U.S., including at The Watermill Center (under the artistic direction of Robert Wilson), RubbitHole in New York, SPACE in Pittsburgh, and Automata, Tongva Park in Los Angeles. Their immersive public performance event We Can’t’ Wait Much Longer has been selected into the second tier of the Sundance Institute New Frontier Story Lab, and the final list of Rapid Pulse International Performance Art Festival.
