The Iberian Pig in Buckhead hosts comedian Phil Rosenthal, star of Netflix’s Somebody Feed Phil, on Tuesday, May 21 at the Buckhead Theatre for dinner, a show screening, and a Q&A with Atlanta radio personality Mara Davis. The theme for the evening, of course, centers around foods from the Iberian peninsula, which borders Spain and Portugal.
For those unfamiliar with Rosenthal’s latest show, the Everybody Loves Raymond creator basically travels the world — from Tel Aviv to Mexico City — in search of that next bite, meeting up with his family and friends along the way.
The evening begins at 6 p.m. with various clips from episodes shot in Barcelona and Lisbon, followed by a question and answer session with Davis, and a tasting from chefs John Castellucci (The Iberian Pig-Buckhead) and Matthew Ridgway (Cooks & Soldiers).
Tickets are $120 per person and include admission to the event, the tasting, and two drinks.
Rosenthal won a James Beard award for Best Television Program in 2016 for his PBS series, I’ll Have What Phil’s Having.
The Castellucci Hospitality Group (Double Zero, Cooks & Soldiers, Bar Mercado, Recess, Sugo) opens the second Iberian Pig on Monday, May 13. The Buckhead sibling to the Decatur Spanish tapas restaurant resides at the Hanover Buckhead Village on Roswell Road. Iberian Pig-Buckhead includes a similar menu to Decatur, focusing on tapas like bacon wrapped Medjool dates and pulpo a la plancha (cast iron seared octopus), charcuterie, and Spanish cheeses.
