New Orleans Yelp Elites were privy to some posh surrounding in the MiLA bar at the Renaissance New Orleans Pere Marquette Hotel for their very first event of the year, “2016 Elite Meet & Greet at MiLA.” With a seasonal menu driven by fresh ingredients, MiLa delivers a new style of Southern fare with a lighter touch using French techniques, and our Elites were able to get a taste!…
This Sunday sizzled with a three-piece band, a rousing game of Yelpo, rum cocktails from locally-distilled Old New Orleans Rum, and delicious light bites from Executive Chef Benjamin Sarrat including crispy Mirliton chips with Gulf shrimp and blue crab remoulade, smoked garlic soup shooters with Gulf shrimp, and housemade boudin balls with red bean puree. If that doesn’t get your mouth watering, you better check your pulse.
Between dishes, guests enjoyed rounds of photo-worthy cocktails from Pimm’s Cups to mojitos overflowing with mint, crafted by their expert and amicable bartending staff.
These snap-happy Elites documented their bites, libations, and band in wonderful pics, but it was decided that Emily M. garnered “Best in Show” for her shot of the beautiful design of the lovely MiLA bar. She was awarded a stay-cation for one night at Renaissance New Orleans Pere Marquette Hotel along with dinner at MiLA. Needless to say Emily M. is winning this year.
But in the end, all of the Elites found something to enjoy at their very first event of the year! Check out the glowing reviews here as well as the amazing photos snapped by Trevor Mark Photography of this sensational Sunday here!
