CREATE, a celebration of art, food, drink and music by Chef Louis DiBiccari, will be showcasing some of Boston’s brightest rising art, culinary and mixology stars at Boston Winery in Dorchester on Sunday, June 1st from 2:00PM-6:00PM. With this much creative energy in the room, things are bound to get a little crazy.
Now in its third year, CREATE draws inspiration from Chef DiBiccari’s ties to the artistic community. Growing up, Louie was heavily influenced by his Uncle Adio, an American Master Sculptor whose Tavern Road studio would later become the inspiration and namesake of Louie’s first restaurant. Living in Fort Point in the mid-2000s, Louie experienced the breadth of Boston’s artistic talent firsthand and has been determined to cast a spotlight on it ever since.
"No other city takes more pride in its athletes, doctors, politicians, scholars and chefs. All of these people are granted celebrity status in Boston, but no one’s talking about the artists. Truth is, we have some amazing artistic talent in our own backyard that deserves to be celebrated. CREATE is a platform to give these artists the recognition they deserve."
Inside of the winery, chefs and bartenders will be paired with visual artists to create a dish and drink that corresponds, interacts or interprets the art. There will be six art/food/drink stations set up inside of Boston Winery. Art will vary, may be 2D or 3D, and may be interactive (live).Guests are encouraged to peruse and purchase at their leisure— seeing, sipping and tasting a trifecta of Bostonian culture. Outside of the winery, tunes from Moe Pope and DJ TJ Connelly keep the energy amped.

CREATE is a celebration of art, food, drink and music by Chef Louis DiBicarri. Now in its third year, the festival draws inspiration from Chef DiBiccari’s strong ties to the local artistic community, and aims to showcase homegrown talent.
CREATE both locates and celebrates nascent talent, pairing upcoming artists with the next wave of the city’s great chefs. You may not know their names, and in many ways you’re not supposed to. The point is that you won’t be able to forget them after seeing and tasting their work.
About Chef Louis DiBiccari/Tavern Road
Louis DiBiccari is the chef/owner of Tavern Road and TRStreetFood and the founder of Chef Louie Night and CREATE. A fixture in the Boston culinary scene for the past 16 years, DiBiccari earned his chops working at L'Espalier, Sage and Sel de la Terre, all while throwing epic Iron Chef-style dinner parties on the side. As a chef he has been dedicated throughout his career to local farmers and nose-to-tail cooking. His Fort Point restaurant, Tavern Road, is the neighborhood spot of Fort Point & the Innovation District – an easy-going, inviting place to regularly visit for elevated, yet approachable food & drink.
Brothers DiBiccari derived inspiration for the restaurant from their Uncle Adio DiBiccari, an American master sculptor, and his art studio, which was located on Tavern Road by the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Community is key for DiBiccari, and when he's not cooking in a kitchen full of up-and-coming chefs at his own events, you can find him and his delicious creations at culinary happenings all around town.
