Bryan’s House

The annual dinners for the charity Bryan’s House are becoming one of the hottest tickets in Dallas. Last year, seven chefs teamed up to serve an extraordinary dinner for $500 per person, with proceeds benefitting Bryan’s House and its mission of helping children born with special needs. The 2024 edition is getting even more exciting and exclusive. On March 28, chefs Dean Fearing (Fearing’s), Toby Archibald (Quarter Acre), Misti Norris (Petra and the Beast), RJ Yoakum (Georgie), and Regino Rojas (Purépecha, Revolver Taco Lounge) will join host chef Peja Krstic (Mot Hai Ba) for a private 12-table dinner with drink pairings. Krstic, who has been involved with Bryan’s House for years, told us last year about his work with the charity and what it means to him. This year, the event’s focus is shifting to group sponsorships and partners. But there are a limited number of general public tickets available for $750 each, and they’re nearly sold out. 115 S. Beckley Ave.
