As I wrote about HERE, I won tickets for four people to attend this event organized by TableHoppingNY. I was grateful and excited, but was not sure exactly how the event would play out. Well, I dragged Won’t Run and two other special friends, Rosanna and Joey, and we attended the event. The verdict is in: we had a blast, the wine was delicious, the food was amazing, the ambiance was fabulous — we had a wonderful and memorable evening. We all agreed – this was special and we would gladly go again!
Special thanks to TableHoppingNY – and its representatives, Amanda and Remy, to Cafe Tallulah, a restaurant that I can’t wait to return to, its Chef, Lazlo, his great culinary skills and his excitement at sharing the history of bouillabaisse and couscous, and Brian Flanagan, a fantastic master of ceremonies and passionate expert on French Burgundy wines. Here are some photos – I apologize if some of the food shots are already bitten into, but I couldn’t help myself. So too, I seemed to have forgotten to photograph the bouillabaisse, but I can tell you, it was insanely delicious.
7 pm and we were escorted to the lower level of Cafe Tallulah for this private event. They were all ready for us:
Greetings from Remy of TableHoppingNY:
The master of ceremonies, Brian told us all about White Burgundies. He was genuine and approachable – a true pleasure to speak to:
The chef, Lazlo, came out and presented each course. His passion was infectious!
Pour it baby!
The oysters – magnifique!
The bouillabaisse was so good I forgot to take a picture of it. Just imagine a smooth seafood soup, pieces of fish, and a piece of toast with aioli!
Moving on, the main course, Branzino with couscous was so good!
The crowd was happy and very engaged!
Desert was a sweet dessert wine (perhaps the smoothest wine I’ve ever had) and three cheeses: a goat, a sheep and a cow. Again, excuse the bites..
The four of us were happy. Here’s Rosanne and me:
and Won’t Run and Joey:
This was truly a special night. I WILL do this again!
