Slow Food East End will have its spring market dinner tonight at Almond restaurant in Bridgehampton. While the deadline for reservations has passed, reservations are being taken for the group’s next event, a dinner co-sponsored by the Joshua Levine Memorial Foundation on April 17. “A Moveable Feast,” to be held at the Dodds and Eder Landscape Design Showroom in Sag Harbor, will raise money for kitchen gardens on the East End in honor of the late Mr. Levine, who was interested in educating children about healthy eating and sustainable farming. A host of East End chefs, restaurants, and purveyors will contribute foods, and a silent auction will take place. Tickets are $150 per person, or $100 for Slow Food members, with a $25 discount given to members who buy two or more tickets.
