Load up a plate with Arnold's hunka-hunka roast beef, roast chicken, or the aren't-we-fancy tilapia with tarragon cream sauce, along with mountains of those beautiful vegetables, including fried green tomatoes and corn pudding. For dessert, titrate your sugar tolerance with chocolate, key lime and pecan pies and banana pudding.
A ticket to the 1 p.m. seating is $50 — where else are you going to eat James Beard award-winning food at that price? — and benefits Community Food Advocates, which works to make fresh, healthy food more readily available in schools and neighborhoods, particularly low-income neighborhoods.
You must have a ticket in advance. To register for the 1 p.m. seating, click here. (Note: There will no longer be a 3 p.m. seating, as mentioned earlier.) If you arrive early, don't be eatin' up all the corncakes.
