It’s here it’s here it’s here! After a wonderful bridal shower and a delicious bachelorette weekend, I knew that the food at Ms. O’s wedding would not disappoint. Boy was I right!!
The ceremony was incredibly beautiful and ended well before the reception started. I was happy to find Ms. H and even happier that she invited me to come hang at her hotel. Unfortunately, we spent a little more time than we should have and arrived at the New York Athletic Club a little late. This meant that I was only able to try one kind of passed hors d’oeuvres.
I’m a big fan of crab cakes though so I was thrilled that this was the hors d’oeuvre that I found. There were rumors of shumai, salmon and so many other delicious items. It pains me to have missed out on the opportunity to photograph and taste them. Luckily, there was also a pasta station.
I only had time to try the Penne. It was incredible and definitely hit the spot. I couldn’t have been happier. After hearing about the fantastic items at the cocktail hour, I knew that dinner was going to be fantastic. I arrived at my table just as the salad landed.
As always I was suspicious of cheese on my plate but turns out it was goat cheese which went well with the greens, raspberries and nuts. I was excited about the entrée and I had a feeling that it would be a Land & Sea meal. I was right!
Chilean Sea Bass and a healthy piece of beef. I don’t eat beef but EVERYONE at my table who did inhaled the meal! Our table was virtually silent when everyone was eating. No words except for comments directly related to how delicious the food tasted. Since I don’t eat beef, I was pleased that this was a land & sea dinner, because once I alerted our waiter, he arrived with this.
YUM! The Chilean Sea Bass was amazing! Super fresh and the sauce was perfect hints of spice and tomatoes. The crab cake like structure you see is actually potatoes! Brilliant! I’ll admit it I was fooled but it would be pretty silly to put two seafood items on the plate. Guess I was still dreaming of the crab cake from the cocktail hour! One of the guests sitting at my table ordered the vegetarian dish.
I gotta tell you, that is the most hearty veggie plate I’ve ever seen. And he finished it right up!
Dessert followed soon after.
I never quite got the name of this tasty treat but it had blueberries, blackberries and if my memory serves me right, raspberries and strawberries. Cream and fruit – what more does one need?
Oh right, the cake! I believe this was red velvet though I must admit I was a little confused because I’m pretty sure I saw their wedding cake in one piece shortly after I downed this little guy.
After/during the meal, almost everyone was on the dance floor. The band kept it live and everyone was in great spirits. Congratulations Ms. O and Mr. M wishing you all the best!
