LA East elites indulged in a ménage à trois of samplings at the Baguettes, Burgundy and Biere avec Yelp fête on Wednesday, February 24. Taix French Restaurant provided an ambiance full of l’amour, serving up fancy fare that had everyone saying “oui oui” to seconds (and thirds)! Short ribs, coq au vin, ratatouille, fromage galore, including an endless baked brie wheel, and a little peach tart and chocolate mousse action resulted in everyone leaving with their top button undone.
Live music filled the air and a surprise French Polynesian dance ensemble performance inspired "oh la la" gasps. Guests quenched their thirst with Kronenbourg 1664 and were educated on the makings of a fine Burgundy, both red and white, imported by Vineyard Brands from Monsieur Mike Taix himself. Baguettes, berets and a sparkling Eiffel Tower combined for a belle backdrop that had guests clamoring for their picture perfect moment. A big merci to Santiago Valencia for capturing the elegance (and silliness) of the evening so beautifully, and entertaining us all while snapping away!
In addition to snagging edible baguettes to recreate the magic of the evening back at home, a few special attendees won gift certificates from Venokado, Taix French Restaurant (for a part deux) and Lola's (winner Carrie D and beau Brian were celebrating their 9th anniversary that night)! C'est magnifique!
