The collaborative meal includes the cooking skills of former chefs of this Bay View small plates joint who've since moved on to Goodkind, Dandan and The Vanguard.

Close to five years have passed since the opening of Odd Duck (2352 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.). Five! And over that expanse of time, several locally known chefs have passed through the Duck ranks.

So when owners Ross Bachhuber and Melissa Buchholz hold their 5-Year Anniversary Party on April 30, several former coworkers will also share the kitchen ‒ for one night only. They include Dan Jacobs (of Dandan), Lisa Kirkpatrick and Paul Zerkel (of Goodkind), and Shay Linkus (of The Vanguard).  

Some things to note: 

*The menu will feature throw-back menu items (including cocktails) from when the respective chefs worked at Odd Duck.

*They’re not accepting reservations for the dinner. But you can put your name on the waiting list, and they’ll call you when your seats are available. The bar opens at 3 p.m. for drinks and bar snacks, with dinner service starting at 5 p.m.

*Proceeds from the meal benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee.
