Additionally, the website says, “Not to mention our lineup of top celebrity chefs like Tim Hollingsworth, Marc Iacono, Nyesha Arrington, Nobu Restaurants and more go head-to-head to compete in the National ConTender Championships for Best Tender where you’ll get to experience their custom recipes first hand.”

Speaking of celebrity chefs, the best chicken tender restaurant on the Westside, chef Brandon Kida’s Go Go Bird, located in Culver City in the Citizen Public Market, will be one of the competitors at Tenderfest.
