This weekend marks the Great Forest Park Balloon Race, and celebrity chef David Burke is more than rising to the occasion.


Saturday, September 21, Grand Tavern by David Burke (626 North Grand Boulevard, 314-405-3399) will host a four-course tasting dinner titled Up in the Sky inspired by the balloon race prepared by Burke and executive chef Robert Cantu at the private rooftop event space of the Angad Rooftop Terrace.
