Originally from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Diminich grew up in the restaurants of both his father and grandfather. After working his way up the ranks in his family restaurants and training with other local chefs, Diminich enrolled at the Culinary Institute of America where he graduated with a degree in Culinary Arts. After graduation, Diminich trained under Chef and Owner Georges Perrier at Le Bec Fin in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He then headed back to work at BLT Steak located in the Ritz Carlton Charlotte, worked under Executive Chef Raffaele Dall’Erta at The Hampton’s Restaurant in Sumter and was Executive Chef of Upstream Restaurant in Charlotte. In 2019, Sam appeared on Beat Bobby Flay, taking down the legendary Chef in a ‘battle’ of Lobster Risotto.

Sam has also been very transparent about his sobriety and has found a purpose in sharing his journey publicly in hopes of helping others with similar journeys. He is Co-Leader of the Charlotte, NC chapter of Ben’s Friends, a support group offering hope, fellowship and path forward to those food and beverage professionals who struggle with addiction and alcoholism.

The event menu will provide the opportunity for attendees to have a preview of his upcoming opening of Restaurant Constance. A limited number of tickets will be sold for each event in the series, and tickets for this event can be purchased at starting August 24th. Tickets include beverage pairings, gratuity and taxes.

About Your Farms Your Table and Restaurant Constance

Chef Sam Diminich’s Your Farms Your Table is a Farm to Table meal delivery service currently operating out of The City Kitch West End which is dedicated to unifying the community at the dinner table and telling the stories of the farmers and suppliers of the foods that they serve. Restaurant Constance will be a new non concept restaurant by Your Farms Your Table. While the overwhelming tale of most restaurants in the industry is to pick a label and fall in line, Restaurant Constance has chosen a different path and designed a restaurant where “listening” is the under current – listening to the seasons, listening to the farmers and growers, listening to their stories and listening to each other as they collectively share space, share food and share new ideas. The menus that they’ve procured are an assembly that is both symbolic of the direction of the restaurant but also an opportunity to honor the community and embrace our relationships with food.
