But for now, let's eat! Tickets for the Wednesday, October 6, event at Vibiana are still available and can be purchased at the door: For $100 (all your money goes to local L.A. food and hunger programs) you'll be able to taste dishes from 30 local chefs who will be featuring fresh, local ingredients from L.A.'s foodshed.

For Daniels, this event signifies a turning point for a previously-lagging Los Angeles. "We'll talk about what we're doing," says Daniels. "But we're also celebrating the fact that L.A. is stepping up to the plate."
