The nationally celebrated Moon Rabbit restaurant at The Wharf in Washington, D.C., features modern Vietnamese cuisine that evokes memory, honors history, references globally inspired techniques, and spotlights reinterpreted takes on regional Vietnamese dishes. Chef Kevin Tien, named one of Food & Wine magazine’s 10 Best New Chefs, oversees a menu that’s a love letter to his heritage as a first-generation Asian-American and showcases dishes that tell his life story.

Tien’s menu, specially designed for Smithsonian Associates’ guests, reflects his upbringing in Southern Louisiana by pairing Vietnamese traditions with Cajun flavors, resulting in what he calls Viet-Cajun cuisine. Heavily seafood inspired, the dinner pays homage to the Louisiana Gulf coast and Mekong Delta, both significant sources of food, culture, and ways of life. Tien is on hand to discuss the dishes and their personal connections.

The ticket price includes a four-course dinner; drinks are not included but can be ordered separately.
