Baconstravaganza with Celestia’s Coastal Cuisine

October 29, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Being the chef behind Soul Food Bistro will get you a lot of love in Jacksonville. Just ask Chef Celestia Mobley. Chef Celestia may be beloved and best known for her soul food, but that’s certainly not all she does. In 2017 she opened her own restaurant, Celestia’s Coastal Cuisine, and the locals can’t get enough. In preparing for this event I stopped at Celestia’s and was met with a woman walking out of the restaurant, hollering to her friend, “That’s the best sweet tea I have EVER HAD!” Talk about a rave review! Whatever you have at Celestia’s Coastal Cuisine, it’s certainly going to stick with you as a memorable meal. It’s just that good.

Celestia’s Coastal Cuisine specializes in seafood, but Chef Celestia herself is a classically trained chef who can make pretty much everything delicious. Bacon is one of her personal favorites, so her creative wheels starting turning the second we started talking about a six course dinner centered around bacon. This menu is a beautiful mosaic of Chef Celestia’s imagination and some of the dishes and ingredients integral in her restaurant. We can’t get over the Bacon Butter Candle, which is an actual candle made of butter and bacon fat, to dip your bread in. This is an event you don’t want to miss! Tickets are limited for this one night only event, so call your friends or text your spouse and snag your tickets.
