DiRoNA Conference in October another feather in cap of Louisville food scene

Chefs and restaurateurs from the U.S., Canada and Mexico will meet in a Distinguished Restaurants of North America conference Oct. 5-8 at the Brown Hotel.

DiRoNA was founded in 1990 to raise dining standards and promote fine dining in North America. The choice of Louisville for its conference, which has been held in vacation spots such as Cozumel and Napa in the past, is another verification, if any be needed, of the growing prominence of Louisville in the national food scene.

Louisville’s central location will draw a large turnout, Keith Kehlbeck, executive director of the organization, said in a story by writer Caitlin Bowling in Business First.

DiRoNA was founded in 1990 and aims to raising dining standards and promote fine dining in North America. In addition to presentations about restuarnt issues and food trends, the conference will include an awards ceremony where restaurants are honored for outstanding service, ambiance and cuisine.
