Join us for the 26th annual Bern’s Winefest at the Art, Bubbles, and Bern’s Brunch at our legendary steakhouse. Hosted at Bern’s Steak House for the second time in over six decades, the seated four-course brunch will be prepared by Executive Chef, Chad Johnson and his team of culinary experts.  

In partnership with local art gallery, CASS Contemporary, Bern’s Family Restaurant Group has commissioned a beautiful large scale painting to be unveiled during the festivities. After the unveiling, join us in our famous Cameo dining room to relish in a steakhouse brunch paired with  selections from our sponsors at Kobrand Fine Wine & Spirits and Champagne Taittinger. The toasting is sure to be indulgent!

This year’s artist will be Fintan Magee. The artwork unveiled on this day will reside in our newly renovated lounge at Bern’s Steak House, which will be completed in the summer of 2023. Last year’s artwork was created by Paola Delfin and hangs on the wall in our lounge at Haven. Additionally, our Bern’s Winefest art collection consists of pieces by American artists; Tristan Eaton, Dalek, FAITH XLVII, PichiAvo, and Joram Roukes – all of which can be enjoyed at our three South Tampa sister properties.

The Laxer Family Foundation is a charitable foundation that provides the opportunity to raise money through events that foster a more inclusive and cooperative youth culture while cultivating the advancement of the next generation of culinary leaders through scholarships. Since 1997, Bern’s Winefest has been the main fundraising event for the Bern Laxer Memorial Scholarship. Through the James Beard Foundation selection process, funds are awarded to individuals from the state of Florida in one of three disciplines: Culinary Arts, Hospitality Management, or Viticulture. A portion of the proceeds raised through this event will go  directly to the Bern Laxer Memorial Scholarship Fund.
