2014 Amelia Island Restaurant Week Kick Off Dinner

The 2014 Amelia Island Restaurant Week kicks off Thursday, January 16 at Café 4750 at the Ritz Carlton, Amelia Island when Amelia Island chefs and farmers gather at The Ritz-Carlton to prepare a celebratory Farm-to-Table Feast orchestrated and directed by Executive Chef Thomas Tolxdorf.
