DOWNTOWN—Neil Fraser's Redbird, at the Vibiana Rectory, is finally conducting previews starting Oct 2. To pick up tickets to the dinner, which is presented by C-Cap and benefits culinary students, click here.
For $175, get entrance to the cocktail party, tour of the space, and dinner. A bit of steep price to be one of the few early diners at this return, in a sense for Fraser, who's had bld for many years, but shuttered his main restaurant Grace back in 2009. For those wanting something on the simple side, there's a $50 cocktail party only option. [EaterWire]
