We love acts of employee appreciation! Last night, Studio AD, a company specializing in Creative Event Design, threw a beautiful dinner for their staff. Normally when we work with corporate clients who are hosting their own event at their place of work, we are confined to a location with little character and ambiance, but not in this case. With tons of linens, lighting, and décor in house, a small section of the warehouse was transformed into an elegant dining area. Gold chiavari chairs glistened in the light of flameless candles, as the amber and purple hues of the surrounding uplighting reflected playfully off the sheer white drapery. The tablescape, simple and upscale, was made up of shades of dark grey with accents of white and gold.
When guests entered, they were greeted by trays of our Slow Braised Short Rib Arancini with a Red Wine Reduction and grated Pecorino Cheese, as well as the favorite Spicy Ahi Tuna Tartare in a Wonton Cup with Sriracha, Ginger, and Wasabi Dust. After enjoying the hors d’oeuvres and sipping on wine, guests took their seats for a family style dinner that would make even your mother proud. Sweet Corn Bread with Honey Whipped Butter adorned the table, as Charred Corn and a Baby Spinach Salad accompanied our Seared Branzino and the Grilled Hanger Steak. Finally, to end on a sweet note, guests were treated to a plated Warm Challah King’s White Chocolate Bread Pudding with Lemon Confit and Salted Caramel.
The evening was a complete success. The client was happy as we boxed up leftovers and sent them, stomachs full, along their way.
