Third Annual Dabney Dinner

  • First African Baptist Church 2700 Hanes Avenue Richmond, VA, 23222 United States (map)

Restaurateurs and caterers honor the legacy of John Dabney, a renowned Richmond caterer, restaurateur and barman of the 19th century, in food and story with Michael Hall of Spoonbread Bistro and Velma Johnson of Mama J's, Michael Twitty, author of The Cooking Gene, and others. The evening includes a new documentary premiere by filmmakers Field Studio that details Dabney's remarkable life and traces his talents through his multi-talented descendants and a book-signing with Twitty. We're thrilled to be holding this event at Dabney's own church, First African Baptist.
