The Kitchen Pass: Deliciously Exclusive and All-Inclusive


Get off the sidelines and get into the kitchen with this private dining experience.

Sound amazing? The chow is just the beginning! From 10 am to 4 pm, enjoy a premium, fully-stocked bar with top-shelf cocktails. 

It all kicks off at 10 am with Chef Trevor's famous Cajun Breakfast Casserole, a bloody mary and mimosa bar, and a host of bakery treats from our friends at Schnucks. Then it's go time. You'll be the first to enjoy authentic Cajun food as soon as it comes out of the Sugarfire smoker and the jambalaya pot. Enjoy craft cocktails by Pour Decisions and a parade of other Cajun treats and samples from our demos.
