Lobster Fest 2019

  • September 14, 2019

You are invited to join us for Lobster Fest!! 

This is our West Coast version of a New England Style lobster dinner (with a few upgrades!).  Continuing our annual homage to our deep love of the most delicious of sea creatures – the Maine Lobster… and all things New England.   

This event has historically been a reunion for lifelong friends and a gathering of personal friends, old and new of the Fanaris Family who share a passion for lobster and all that goes with it.   Noelle & John have been hosting this event at their home for the last 28 years… Now, after almost fours years in Mar Vista, Rustic Kitchen has introduced them to an incredible community and many new friends who they feel deeply connected to. 

This year, we bring the two together to celebrate the 29th Lobster Fest at Rustic Kitchen.  Communal tables will be the setup for a shared experience with friends old and new..
