On Tuesday, September 22, Yelp Boston Elites gathered together on the fabulous patio of Scampo in The Liberty Hotel to wave goodbye to the Summer we never had! Although we'd be lying if we said we were ready for Fall, you'd never know we were sad to see the warm weather go, 'cause Elites mingled, munched and mmm mmm mmm'd over the cuisine, cocktails and company throughout this wonderful evening.
Greeted by what can only be called some of the friendliest, most hospitable staff in all of Boston, the night began at the bar, with Ultimat Vodka cocktails of choice, bottles of Heineken and Heinken Light, glasses of Merlot, Cabernet and Albarino, and Scampo's signature Fall cocktail. Mounds of delicious dips including Taran, Fava Bean and Eggplant were consumed post-haste as the hors d'œuvres began making their way out of the kitchen. The menu included Julia's (yes, that's Child) Roka Tart with Concord Grapes, Bufala Ricotta Ravioli, Sugar Cane Chicken Thighs, Chanterelle Pizza, Chestnut Soup, Naan with Prosciutto and Mozzarella, Petite Mozzarella Salad and Mini Lobster Popovers. Clearly, the food and drinks were the star of the night's festivities.
Throughout the evening, you could catch glimpses of Chef Lydia Shire handing pizzas to salivating Elites, merrily chatting them up on the subject of chicken thighs, asking if
they'd tried the Lobster Popovers, which were utterly, intoxicatingly
amazing, if case you were curious! We welcomed Elite event first-timers
Jamie K, Traci K and John A, who snagged a plus one from Nik B!
Though we'll soon be suiting up in scarves, hats and mittens, this was one gastronomically great way to celerbate the change in season: a casual night of happy bellies, good friends and service fit for kings and queens! For making this night happen, a big shout-out to the lovely ladies at The Moxie Agency, the management and staff of Scampo, including Richard, Gina & Cara! And for tantalizing our tummies and making us feel right at home, special thanks to Chef Lydia Shire!
