The Academy Awards are only a few days away, which means Hollywood A-listers are busy planning what they’ll be wearing and where they’ll be partying after the Oscar for Best Picture is handed out. Though the Vanity Fair party has long been the de-facto destination for anyone hoping to see and/or be seen, an upstart soiree hosted by the hottest celebrity couple on the planet looks like it’ll be the most coveted invite—and culinarily thrilling event—on the Oscars party circuit this year.
For the second year in a row, Beyonce and husband Jay Z will host their “Gold Party” for an incredibly exclusive group of Hollywood elites and some of their other celebrity friends. If it’s anything like last year’s inaugural iteration, it will be held in the parking garage of the Chateau Marmont and feature a star-studded list of attendees like Leonardi DiCaprio, Black Panther’s Michael B. Jordan, and future NBA Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant.

But the guest list isn’t nearly as important as what’s on the menu. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jay and Bey have tapped Daniel Humm, who serves as the executive chef of Eleven Madison Park (the 4th best restaurant in the world, NBD), to curate the Gold Party’s cuisine.
Though the hosts want their fans to adopt plant-based diets, it doesn’t seem like they’ll deprive their famous friends of good meat-based eats. Reports on last year’s party suggests the menu could include items like decadent chicken and waffles and fancy truffle quesadillas. Oh, and gallons of caviar, which is not a unit of measurement I thought could apply to fish eggs.
Between the excellent eats and the fact that A+ list celebs won’t have to rub elbows with the kind of peasants that somehow con their way into other Oscars parties, you can probably expect to watch some Instagram stories about the Gold Party on Monday morning. I’m hoping Chrissy Teigen gets invited so she can review all the food.
