This really looks like an excellent event. 3 chefs will be doing a special cocktail/charcuterie hour, and then i guess the other 17 will do the regular 3-6 tasting event. I think this is a great idea myself, esp because it's regional, and includes chefs from Portland Me, Portsmouth, and R.I.The Boston chefs are all 'top players' imo, so it bodes well for the quality overall.
lord knows there are many opportunities like this in April, but this one seemed relatively less expensive for the number of good chefs represented. Check it out! ( Oh,and it's held at the Sonesta,so you know you'll be able to find some seating options! ) Should be fun .
