Last week, 30 lucky Elites from Central Jersey got the coveted invite to spend an artful Elite Event at Grounds for Sculpture and dining at Rat’s Restaurant in Hamilton, New Jersey. The evening started with a self-guided tour of the beautiful artwork and gardens of Grounds for Sculpture while they sipped on specialty cocktails or champagne. Afterwards, Elites were invited upstairs for an intimate sit down dinner featuring the new fall menu. Guests sipped on house wine as they each enjoyed their choice of an appetizer, an entree, and dessert, served with tea or coffee. Tuna tartare, short rib, sea scallops, duck breast, creme brûlée, and cherry olive oil cake were just a few of the delicious options our Elites were able to pick from. Be sure to check out the five star reviews here and the photos here! A very big thank you to both Rat’s Restaurant and Grounds for Sculpture for a wonderful evening!
