Mélisse chef Josiah Citrin is taking his talents to the fighting ring—or at least, to his opponent's backyard. On July 6, Citrin and his friend Michael Curls (not a chef, mind you, but an attorney) are battling it out in a BBQ challenge, and it's all in the name of charity. The two cooks will go head to head in Curls' home (3876 Olympiad Drive) over brisket, baby back ribs, short ribs, turkey, chicken and pulled pork, while attendees will get to vote for the winner. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Fastbreak Youth Basketball Academy. Who will win, the two Michelin-starred chef or the lawyer? Either way, you'll be noshing on some damn good brisket and pecan pie.
