On Saturday, January 20, 2024, ChefDance Social hosted the “Taste of Korea” dinner during the Sundance Film Festival featuring Acclaimed Chef Jo Seunghyun who was flown in from Korea, for an incredible 5 course meal presented by the evening’s presenting partner, Hyundai. ChefDance founders Mimi Kim and Kenny Griswold co-hosted the event, with special guest, actor Chris Meloni.

EDM DJ Sensation Odesza, DJ Paul Oakenfold, actor Han Lue, Chef & Activist Caroline D’Amore, celebrity photographer David Lee, and many more filmmakers, actors and industry VIPs attended the intimate seated dinner.

The evening reflected upon Hyundai’s support for the film and hospitality community.  Chef Jo’s incredible cuisine had guests floored, with cuisine highlights including Hwe-Muchim, Lobster Tteok Sam, and Galbijjim.

After two decades of captivating the palates of the elite during the Sundance Film Festival, ChefDance founders Mimi Kim and Kenny Griswold are delighted to welcome guests to their permanent concept.

“Park City is a very special and unique place for residents and visitors alike. Kenny and I thought that it deserved a special Culinary gem that would up the food scene so after 20 years of bringing remarkable chefs into Park City for ChefDance we decided to open a permanent restaurant with Shawn McClain as a culinary partner, offering fine Italian cuisine. We will also have visiting Chefs throughout the year such as Chef Seunghyun who I was honored to welcome to our kitchen, to offer variety of food and experiences. It is very important to us to give back to the community that has given so much to us…”
