Join us for this rare opportunity to hear about one of America's top restaurateurs journey with food. Tony Foreman is an entrepreneur and the business mind behind all Foreman/Wolf restaurants and wine shops. Tony opened Savannah restaurant in Baltimore's Fell's Point with chef Wolf in 1995 and then went on to establish Cindy Wolf's Charleston in 1997, where Foreman is co-owner and wine director.

 Tony and Cindy then went on to develop Petit Louis Bistro, a French restaurant in Baltimore's Roland Park, inspired by Bistro L'ami Louis in Paris. In November 2001, Foreman added a wine store, Bin 604 wine sellers, to his portfolio. The innovative wine shop in downtown Baltimore was named Best New Wine Shop in the Country by Food and Wine magazine in 2002. Bin 201 wine sellers opened in Annapolis, Maryland in December, 2009 at Annapolis Towne Centre.

Foreman opened PAZO, a magnificent Baltimore restaurant and lounge serving the flavors of the Western Mediterranean in a stunning converted 1880's machine shop in late 2004, and his most recent venture, Cinghiale, a northern Italian restaurant in September of 2007. The Cinghiale wine list was recognized by Food & Wine magazine as having one of the best new wine lists in the country in 2008
