Members of the Yelp Elite Squad were treated to a taste of Cyrano’s Cafe, one of the most popular date night restaurants in St. Louis. While Cyrano’s is known throughout the city for their award-winning desserts, Elites enjoyed an appetizer sampler featuring house-smoked chicken wings, a BBQ pulled pork slider, and their popular homemade hummus.
Designed as a to-go experience, Elites were given a brief opportunity to mix and mingle while remaining socially distanced inside Cyrano’s massive private event space. While waiting for their meals to be packaged, Elites sipped craft cocktails. Elite Steven B raves about the drinks from Cyrano’s:
“HUGE shout out to Brandon the mixologist aka bartender. Wow, this young man can make a good cocktail. For those who don’t know, Sweet Peel one of the cocktails offered that night, is his creation. It was my favorite of the night, but that Jalapeño Margarita was damn good, too.”
While Elites loved the opportunity to engage some of their favorite members of the Yelp community, almost every Elite agreed the star of the show was Cyrano’s famous bread pudding! Cyrano’s packaged their classic dessert with instructions to properly heat the sweet treat at home so Elites could feel like they were dining in the restaurant. The crunchy crust and decadent glaze left Elites, like Dave F, wanting more!
The main draw was the bread pudding surrounded by two whipped cream mounds- sorry doctor I ate the pudding and most of the whipped cream. Heavenly dessert!
With full hearts and full tummies, Elites went home with a Yelp wine glass as a token to remember the evening. Read more about this exclusive Elite Experience on the event page.
