After several requests, an allergen-free dinner is here. We've teamed up with Chef Brian Hale (Sauce Mag Best Chef, Monarch, Chase Park Plaza) and the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America’s St. Louis Chapter to offer a creative and intimate prix fixe dinner made without any of the “Big-8” food allergies: Milk, Eggs, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish, Crustacean Shellfish, Soy, and Wheat.

Join us in The BHIVE at Brennan's for one seating on Friday, July 26. Tickets are $125.00, and include the meal, tax, tip and a donation to the AAFA-STL. Guests may purchase an optional beverage pairing to go with the meal, or order beer, wine and cocktails a la carte from The BHIVE bar menu. An additional donation can also be made to AAFA-STL to support the services they provide to kids with allergies and asthma in the St. Louis community.
