Frequently Asked Questions

Can I pay for my tickets with a check instead of credit card?

By all means, as long as it is paid in advance to secure your seat payment by check is available. Please contact FLIPANY at (954)-FLIPANY or email



What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Valet service will be available at both events. Self-parking is also available at the side lot of The Biltmore Hotel and street parking around the W Fort Lauderdale. Chef's Up Front is a decadent evening of food, wine and cocktails - UBER could be a good option - and we also have special rates at The Biltmore Hotel, W Fort Lauderdale and The Colony.



Can I request the table/chef I sit at?

We will email you the week of the event to inquire on your requested table assignments. Please note, tables are assigned on a first come basis after table sponsors have secured their preferred seating. While we will make every attempt to seat you with your preferred choices, with the outstanding representation we have this year, we know you will have an amazing time.  



Will I be able to make menu adjustments? 

Due to the nature of this event, not all dietary restriction needs can be met. Thank you for your understanding.



Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

If you have questions, please contact FLIPANY at (954)-FLIPANY or email



Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Tickets are transferable. Should you have reason why you are unable to attend after purchasing your tickets, please email with your reservation name and the name of the guest(s) attending in your place. 



Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You do not need to bring your printed receipt, but it is appreciated.
Should you forget to bring your ticket we will require ID to confirm you are who you are and no one is trying to be you for the night. If you are transferring tickets to another, please email with your reservation name and the name of the guest(s) attending in your place. 



What is the refund policy?

We do realize sometimes last minute issues arise which would keep one from attending Chefs Up Front event. Unfortunately, all sales are final and non-transferrable to the Chefs Up Front Fort Lauderdale event. Should you not be able to attend, tickets are transferable - and we guarantee the recipient would love you for it. Please email with your reservation name and the name of the guest(s) attending in your place. 



The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Yes. Chef's Up Front is best shared with others and if you are purchasing multiple tickets for friends or co-workers they will all come with one name. No worries! Within 48 hours of your ticket purchase, a member of the Chefs Up Front committee will email to acknowledge receipt and you will be able to provide the names of your guests at that time, or up to 72 hours in advance of the event. Tickets are also transferrable - so if someone does change plans it is OK too. Simply call (954)- FLIPANY or email with name changes and bring a copy of your printed receipt
