Ghetto Gastro is a Bronx phenomena and Hollywood’s beloved chef Wolfgang Puck is synonymous with delicious party favorites for the stars including the Oscar-worthy Mac and cheese. For the 94th Oscars Governors Ball, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences plans to bring back chef Wolfgang Puck and Wolfgang Puck Catering return with a collaboration alongside NYC culinary geniuses in their own right, Ghetto Gastro. For the initiated Ghetto Gastro’s appeal needs no introduction. The collective has reached both sides of the coast already from past collaborations with Union Los Angeles and others.
Ghetto Gastro reimagines food culture with a fantastic blend of fashion, design, music, and art whiel tapping into relevant issues of race, identity and economic empowerment with influences of the African diaspora, global South ingredients and hip-hop.
“At Ghetto Gastro, we have a saying, ‘WE ONLY LAYER FLAVORS’ (W.O.L.F.) – so we feel it’s only right that we collaborate with the great Wolfgang Puck to create an Oscars Governors Ball unlike any before. Wolf Gang activity,” said Gray, co-founder of Ghetto Gastro.
Guests will be toasting to the Oscar winners with two limited-edition Francis Ford Coppola Wines in honor of the 94th Oscars poured alongside Champagne Fleur de MIRAVAL—the only Champagne house exclusively devoted to Rosé Champagne. Acclaimed mixologist Charles Joly will again curate a selection of Tequila Don Julio specialty cocktails.
