EBI-AYO SUPPER CLUB The Ultimate Dining Experience with Chef Tayo

We are excited to introduce the Ebi-Ayo Supper Club, a remarkable dining series in Los Angeles, CA, offering an unforgettable culinary adventure. “Ebi” in Yoruba signifies “family,” reflecting the communal nature of our dining, while “Ayo” means “joy” or “happiness,” embodying our positive spirit and the essence of our dinners.

Imagine an evening where the bold flavors of Italian cuisine beautifully merge with the vibrant and lively tastes of Nigerian dishes. You’ll be part of a unique community, enjoying a delectable 5-course meal served family-style, each dish thoughtfully accompanied by hand-selected wines to enhance your experience.

Chef Tayo, skilled and passionate about both food cultures, has crafted a 5-course family-style menu blending his Nigerian heritage and love for Italian cuisine to tantalize your taste buds. He believes in family-style dining as a means to build connections and community through shared meals. To enrich this experience, each course is paired with three specially chosen wines that complement and elevate the flavors.

Beyond providing an exceptional dining experience, the Ebi-Ayo Supper Club also supports a noble cause. A portion of our proceeds proudly supports Operation Spread The Love. Our mission is to make a positive difference in the community through regular support and feeding of the homeless, along with assisting those in need every quarter.

By attending our dinner series, guests will not only enjoy fantastic meals and also help bring different cultures closer. Plus, they’ll be supporting the important work in the community.

We look forward to sharing delicious food, incredible wines, and the significant contributions of African cuisine to the culinary world with you. Join us for an evening filled with delightful dishes and memorable moments!

See you at the chef’s table! 🎉🍴

Let’s come together and be a blessing to others. My hope is as we bless others, God will be a blessing unto us as well. One nice home-cooked meal and a bottle of water can go a long way for someone in need and put a smile on their face.

I hope you are just as excited as I am because together, we can make our cities, towns, and world a better place.

Thanks,

Tayo
