Clocking out and ready to party, New York Elites kicked back on the Indian inspired sofas and swings while indulging in delights fit for royalty last night at Junoon! Honoring the first day of summer and giving a nod to the raucous rain storms this month, folks donned their fancy frocks and swanky suits to enjoy the happiest of hours chock full of refreshments and high-class hobnobbing.
A restaurant that's drawn top honors from yelpers and food critics alike, the team from Junoon served out platters of Monkifish Tikka, Piri-Piri Shrimp, Chicken Seek Kebabs, Veggie Samosa, Achari Mushrooms and more. As Jaime H observed, "The trays just kept coming, and coming, and coming." Each dish was more unique and amazing than the next!
Between mouthfuls, yelpers cooled off with Cardamom Starr and Peppery Pear Starr African Rum cocktails designed and sampled for the first time at this event. As Allison C noted, "it's nice to have a drink to write home about." Er, Yelp about! And when guests weren't slurping on top-notch concoctions, ONEHOPE Wines were there to whet the appetite. Need a reason to clink glasses? The sale of each bottle of wine goes towards raising money and awareness for top world charities! Could you possibly still be thirsty? If all those libations still didn't keep yelpers cool enough, 1947 Lager made sure that guests got their retro-chic buzz on before the sun went down!
HUGE thank you to the incredible Junoon staff for hosting and indulging us, along with all the incredible sponsors for making us forget that it's a weekday. See what everyone is saying on Talk, leave your review of the event and scan the photos right here.
Until next time, yelpers, stay funny, useful and cool!
