NOBLEMAN Magazine founders, Doug and Lydia McLaughlin are hosting the NOBLE Wine & Dine Experience at Lido House Hotel in Newport Beach.
According to press info, the exclusive gathering of epicurean enthusiasts promises “an unparalleled experience that combines world-class cuisine, renowned chefs, craft cocktails, and artisanal wine all for a noble cause.”
Proceeds from NOBLE Wine & Dine Experience will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), the world’s largest nonprofit funder of type 1 diabetes research.
Lido House Hotel’s chef-partner Riley Huddleston, himself an impressive chef with the culinary chops and pedigree to prove it, welcomes an equally impressive lineup of 10 chefs and restaurants.
First, Huddleston welcomes Chef Michael Mina of the Michelin star-studded MINA Group, whose restaurants include Bourbon Steak at the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort (and winner of a Best of Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator Magazine for its wine program).
Also participating is James Beard Award semi-finalist Michael Reed, chef-owner of Poppy & Seed; Sommelier and Superbowl XLVI Champion, Will Blackmon of The Wine MVP; and Newport Beach Mayor, Noah von Blom, whose restaurant empire includes ARC Food & Libations in Costa Mesa, ARC Butcher & Baker in Newport Beach, and ARC Bottle, adjacent to Butcher and Baker.
Chefs from Cheferbly (an elite private dining reservation platform), NOBU Newport Beach, and Bello by Sandro Nardone will also delight guests with gastronomy creations from around the globe.
