We’re all familiar with the concept of comfort food. Must be why chefs Ken Oringer (Clio, Toro, Coppa) and Ming Tsai (Blue Ginger, Blue Dragon) — along with Governor Patrick, Mayor Menino and ARAMARK food services — have put together Boston Bites Back, a fundraiser to both bring together the community in the wake of recent tragedy and raise money for Boston Marathon bombing victims.

“Food is our common ground, a universal experience,” said Tsai, in a press release. “This event is an occasion for Bostonians to reconnect over food, mingle with chefs and honor our city’s inspiring resilience. It’s an opportunity for Bostonians to literally ‘bite’ back.”

Tickets for the big food fest fundraiser — to be held in Fenway Park — are pricey ($200 General Admission) but the price is worth both the cause and all the tasty bites from a host of talented chefs attendees will get to sample. Boston Bites Back will be held Wednesday, May 15 from 6-10 p.m.

Only 5,000 GA tickets will be sold, as space is limited. Those with fatter wallets can spring VIP tickets ($1,000) that grant access to an exclusive party in Fenway’s EMC Club. Only 200 VIP tickets will be sold. All attendees can enter an online auction leading up to the fundraiser for a chance to score swag like dining experiences from  Tsai and Oringer and more.
