The Metropolitan Suite Opening Reception

On April 5th I attended the opening reception of The Metropolitan Suite, located at 123 West 18th Street, 2nd Floor.

Sterling Affair and Thomas Preti Events to Savor served up delectable tasting plates served with organic ingredients from nearby farms.

My favorite dishes were the Fresh Chanterelle and Spring Mushroom Ragout with Sweet Pea Risotto, Pork~n~Beans Barbecued Pork Belly on smoky Black and White Chic Peas and the "Cowboy Style" rubbed Ribeye with Corn and roasted Succotash.

I couldn't help but indulge in the delicious organic all chocolate dessert bar, featuring chocolate pots de creme with chocolate smoke, assorted hand crafted chocolate truffles & macaroons, chocolate, baileys and mint shooters and marshmallow pops.

The Metropolitan Suite now features retrofitted design elements such as the only venue with sustainably harvested dark wood floors, paired with high ceilings to create a dramatic effect.

Scharff Weisberg Lighting showcased their new line of energy efficient LED lights.

It was an incredibly fun night of amazing food, drinks and music. I look forward to future events at The Metropolitan Suite!
