Annual Membership Celebration Lunch

Annual Membership Brunch

Border Grill, DTLA

Sunday, November 23, 2014

11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Our Annual Membership Celebration Brunch was held at the famous Border Grill in downtown LA. This is the home of the original "Two Hot Tamales," Dame Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger. Inspired by a road trip through Mexico in VW Bug, they opened their first Border Grill in 1985, setting a new standard for gourmet Mexican fare in LA. Now there are eight Border Grill locations, including a food truck and the new Border Grill in the stunning Forum Shops at Caesars in Las Vegas.


Mary Sue and Susan are two of the country's leading women chefs, cookbook authors and culinary personalities. We enjoyed a Sunday of fantastic food and a spicy good time, plus a very special salute to our own President (and hot tamale!) Dame Phyllis Ann Marshall of FOOD POWER for her phenomenal career and leadership for LDEI LA/OC over the past several years.

(includes brunch and the famous Border Grill Margaritas and/or Mimosas)

Guests are welcome!
