Wouldn't it be a divine dream come true to just close your eyes, wish really hard and bam! suddenly you're in a Bora Bora chowing down on a plate of Poisson Cru?
Ok, so it didn't all go down like that exactly. But it was definitely the next best thing!
On Friday evening, the New Orleans Elite Squad jetted over to Suis Generis, a new restaurant in the Bywater, for a Wanderlust Taste Trip. Here's just a sampling of our exotic international taste tour: Cuban corn cooked on open flame and rolled in chilli, cotija cheese and lime, pineapple manchego skewers, Malaysian short ribs, Sicilian marinated basil mozzarella tomato and basil stacks and much, much more.
Complimentary cocktails featured the pleasantly smooth and delicious Spicebox Whiskey. The Prohibition Mule with fresh lime, ginger and mint and the sweet, tropical Naughty Box rocked our world! Our host for the evening, Ernest, spun from his collection of rare South American and Asian psychedelic vinyl, which provided the perfect exotic soundtrack for this chill trip. Phenomenal food and drink, meeting new people (as well as seeing old friends)… what more do you need for some extraordinary exploration?
Never been to an Elite party before? Take it from Mande P: "I go to a lot of parties and I've always found the Yelp gatherings the most fun. I enjoy the diversity of people, their stories and the food/beverage aspect. Yelpers are my favorite people by a long shot. I find them to be a no b*llsh!t genuine group of folks."
Major thanks to Ernest and Adrienne, owners of Suis Generis, as well as Nadia of Spicebox Whiskey and Sunny, their award winning mixologist.
Until our next excursion,
