CityBeat hosts its annual Iron Fork event — like Iron Chef, but with local chefs. This year’s four participants — Dan Stoltz of The Mercer, Brad Bernstein of Red Feather, Gary Davis of Jack Binion’s Steakhouse and Becca Kinney of La Poste — will battle in a head-to-head competition, preparing and plating dishes utilizing a “mystery” ingredient. The resulting concoctions will be judged by a panel of local foodies. During the competition, attendees can sample cuisine from local restaurants including Hang Over Easy, Holtman’s, Nation Kitchen and Bar, Gramma Debbie’s, Delicio Coal Fired Pizza and more. A portion of event proceeds benefits Gabriel’s Place, a nonprofit that focuses on access to healthy food and food education in Avondale.
5:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday. $40. Cincinnati Art Museum, 953 Eden Park Drive, Mount Adams, citybeat.xorbia.com/ironfork2015.
