Chef Evan Funke Hosts Exclusive Award Season Tasting Event In Beverly Hills

Oscar-worthy bites & sips

On March 5, Chef Evan Funke hosted an exclusive award season media tasting at his iconic Funke Rooftop Bar in Beverly Hills.

Chef Funke, who is currently the official chef of the legendary Vanity Fair Oscar Parties, showcased his artistry and culinary mastery at the event with a pizza bar—an idea that he and Vanity Fair created together for last year’s exclusive Oscars after-party—and bites that have graced the tables of stars on Hollywood’s biggest night.

The renowned chef and global restauranteur is widely known for his warmth in hospitality and reverence for the deeply rooted culinary traditions of Italy with his masterfully handcrafted dishes. As a titan in the industry, Chef Funke brings nearly two decades of excellence to all of his critically acclaimed restaurants–Funke which opened as of May 2023, has become the premier dining location and LA’s most sought after table in Beverly Hills; Mother Wolf in Hollywood and now Las Vegas at the Fontainebleau Hotel; the beloved Felix on Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice; and forthcoming nod to Tuscany, Tre Dita at the St. Regis Hotel in Chicago.
