With a ton of invites in my mailbox on a daily basis, it’s always difficult to wade my way through and decide which invites I want to accept, which to decline and which to put into the “maybe sometime” pile. Just a few weeks ago though and invite arrived that had me almost instantly saying yes, it was an invite for a curated dinner at Feast at the Sheraton Grand Hotel – a hotel which for some reason had escaped my attention although it has been opened almost five months now and upon doing some research is getting a great reputation.
This is a post that almost doesn’t need words as the images will speak for themselves, but I will say that there were a great many superb dishes to choose from and we tasted our way through a menu boasting seventeen dishes designed to showcase many of the dishes that you can choose from. Overall we had an evening of superb seafood which was innovative, fresh and beautifully presented along with a beautiful table setting which was beautifully curated to match the menu and fantastic company as the table was full of hard core food lovers from bloggers to media.
The evening was to officially launch Seafood Thursdays (details at the bottom of this post)
