Boiler House Partners with Witte Museum for Dinner in the Wild Featuring Top San Antonio Chefs
Boiler House partners with Witte to host San Antonio’s first of its kind ticketed dining charity event, “Dinner in the Wild.” On Wednesday, March 21, starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Witte, guests will experience an exclusive evening of fine dining centered around the “Texas Wildlife” theme, incorporating ingredients from the state’s land, water and sky.
Boiler House Texas Grill & Wine Garden, a contemporary Texas cuisine restaurant at Pearl, is excited to announce its new partnership with the Witte Museum, San Antonio’s premier museum, in hosting the first of its kind ticketed dining charity event, “Dinner in the Wild.” On Wednesday, March 21, starting at 6:30 p.m., guests will experience an exclusive evening of fine dining centered around the “Texas Wildlife” theme, incorporating ingredients from the state’s land, water and sky. The inaugural dinner will include an assortment of fare from top local chefs under the stars in the Texas Wild Garden at the Witte for a seated, multi-course feast.
Participating chefs led by Boiler House with Chef Jarrad Gwaltney include Jeff Balfour (Southerleigh), Jason Dady (Tre Trattoria), Tim McDiarmid (Tim the Girl Catering), and Anne Ng and Jeremy Mandrell (Bakery Lorraine). Witte Museum curators Helen Holdsworth, Curator of Texas Wild, and Dr. Bryan Bayles, Curator of Anthropology and Health, will also work in tandem with the chefs and their courses to explore the significance of the South Texas region in the past, present, and future of this great state and how each person can have a profound impact on the stewardship of Texas’ land, water, and sky. The event is co-chaired by Emily and Bo Conrad, as well as Carol and Fred Reyes.
“If it happened on Texas land, water or sky, you can experience it at the Witte Museum,” said Marise McDermott, President and CEO of the Witte Museum. “Through Dinner in the Wild, we are able to narrow the focus on the importance of land stewardship and raise funds for educational programming.”
Entertainment for the evening will be led by Texas’ own singer-songwriter, Luis Rey. The evening will begin with cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres in the newly transformed Witte galleries, followed by a multi-course twilight dinner with al fresco style seating options in the Texas Wild Garden space.
“We are honored to be partnering with The Witte to showcase a first of its kind Texas food-centric curated event in San Antonio,” said James Clarke, General Manager of Boiler House. “Each talented chef will incorporate native Texas wildlife and cuisine into the menu such as deer, quail, squash, and pecans. Our guests are in for a treat!”
All proceeds from the event go directly towards ensuring all K-12 students on field-trips to the Witte Museum are able to experience San Antonio’s official Tricentennial exhibition: Confluence and Culture: 300 Years of San Antonio History, for free. This fundraiser covers all aspects of the field-trip costs: buses, gas, general admission, and Tricentennial programming for students.
Proud sponsors for this event include The Will Smith Foundation, Victory Wine Group, Nature Sweet Tomatoes, Hudspeth River Ranch and Desert Door. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available by contacting Alexandra Brynum at AlexandraBynum@wittemuseum.org.
