The Legend Series Five at the Dee Dot Timberlands

The Legend Series is an underground dining and art event in Northeast Florida that takes place at secret locations and features food from some of the region’s most talented chefs.

I had the opportunity to document the most recent Legend Series dinner at the Dee Dot Ranch and I’m looking forward to the next one, which already sold out in five seconds (for real) when tickets were released. You can read more about Jacksonville Magazine’s feature.
