Finally, a festival for brunch. Chefs Bryce Gilmore (Odd Duck, Barley Swine, forthcoming Sour Duck) and Amanda Rockman (New Waterloo places like South Congress Hotel) have teamed up to throw the breakfast and brunch-centered event in February 2018. 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit No Kid Hungry, which aims to end childhood hunger in America.

Breakfast Bash for No Kid Hungry takes place at upcoming downtown food hall Fair Market, includes participation from over 30 Austin restaurants (check out the website for a full list). It promises a unique opportunity to try breakfast offerings from places that don’t generally serve breakfast fare, so who knows what Uchiko and Olamaie will come up with.

Those who support ice cream for breakfast will be pleased to see three gelaterias on the list (Dolce Neve, Gelateria Gemelli, and Lick). Forthcoming seafood restaurant Guild and bakery Sour Duck Market are also among participants.

The Breakfast Bash will take place on February 17, 2018. Tickets are $85 for general admission and $125 for VIP. This event is part of a national series sponsored by the Food Network, Sysco, Citi, and OpenTable, to benefit No Kid Hungry.
