For the sixth year in a row, Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) has tapped Crumble Catering to cater one of the most exclusive events of the year, The Elton John AIDS Foundation 18th Annual Oscar Viewing Party.With Crumble Catering’s newly built kitchen attached to Vermont Restaurant in Los Feliz, Chef Owner Wayne Elias has decided to offer restaurant patrons the opportunity to taste the Oscars for themselves with a special four course prixe-fixe menu of items off of the Oscar Party’s actual menu created by famed chef Renato Piccoloto from Venice Italy’s Cipriani Hotel.

From Monday, March 8th – March 14th, guests can come into Vermont Restaurant and order off the specialty three course menu, which features items from The EJAF Oscar party menu priced at $45, with $5 of every purchase going to EJAF. “My business partner Chris Diamond and I have been fortunate enough to cater this amazing and exclusive event for the last 5 years and thought why not offer this culinary experience to the general public and raise money for the foundation at the same time, ” says Crumble Catering Owner Wayne Elias. “Since we own restaurants in LA in addition to the catering company, we’re able to offer this special opportunity for guests to come in and taste the Oscars, so to speak. “
