An evening of elevated dining and insightful stories at Restaurant Constance
by TM Petaccia
Sam Diminich is a man of many stories – both high and low. Last night, UP members got to learn more about his journey, his philosophy, and his vision at our UP Meet the Chef dinner at Restaurant Constance. Over five courses, attendees learned about his growing up in his family’s Italian restaurant, his days at one of the country’s top-rated restaurants, his work with Ben’s Friends and local nonprofits, and what he sees for his future — all in his engaging and affable style. Below is a small excerpt of the food and fun guests enjoyed.
