{ pairings } 68 { THE SOMM JOURNAL } DECEMBER/JANUARY 2018/2019 Chef David LeFevre (left) of steakhouse The Arthur J. in Manhattan Beach, CA, is pictured outside the restaurant with emcee extraor- dinaire Billy Harris. "It's always amazing working with Billy," says LeFevre. "His energy and generosity make it easy to do the right thing and create mind-blowing food to help others in need." Billy Harris exudes the electric snap-crackle-pop energy of a downed high- tension wire. As the emcee of the Billy Harris Dinner Series, he wears a black-on-black-on-black shirt, tie, and sequined dinner jacket and sports oversized glasses with lenses the size of iPhone screens. Looking like he belongs in a 1950s supper club, Harris responds to questions with quippy, staccato one-liners that showcase his consummate polish and engaging intelligence. This is stage presence personified. SANTA MARGHERITA USA POURS WINES FOR A GOOD CAUSE AT THE BILLY HARRIS DINNER SERIES by David Gadd / photos by Alex Berliner Presence Stage
