Last Thursday night Yelp Elites and guests dolled up in their finest summer attire to enjoy a special tasting of several fine dishes at Terebinth in Chesapeake. From pasta to paninis and the highly anticiapted macarons, Yelp Hampton Roads was in for every bit of savory, sexy and sweet!
Well just how sweet was this par-tay? Ashlea L claims, "Everything was so delectable I really didn't know what I enjoyed the most. The lemon basil pasta salad was perfect. The panini bread was amazing. And the tomato jam and cheese on a buttery home-made croissant? Yes, please!" Evelyn A's "palate was truly satisfied." To add to her overall experience, "I loved the decor and knowing that most of it was recycled was a bonus." Katrina C found the entire evening to be "fan-smurphing-tastic, fabulous and fancy-schmancy."
Now on to what everyone came for, the French macarons. Before the event, our Elites nominated their very own macaron flavors and the staff at Terebinth selected their favorite with the winner taking home a dozen French macarons. Our lucky winner? Paul T, welcome to the Elite Squad and congrats on your maple bacon suggestion. "It was like a little taste of breakfast." It didn't stop there. From the reviews it looks like Yelp's even a fan of rose water. Denise S brags about how "it made my breath smell like roses! I wanted to wear it like an earring!"
A very heartfelt thank you goes to Kisha Frazer and her staff for hosting the Yelp Hampton Roads Elite Squard. For Nikki F, "all of my pregnancy dreams came true as I stuffed my face full. I'm super stoked to return so I can eat and drink more of their delicious fare and of course, stuff my face with more of their macarons."
It was certainly a night we all want to relive and the pictures say it all. Read through all the reviews to see what you missed. A special thanks goes to Mary-Elizabeth Hightower of ME Photography for spending the evening with us behind the lens capturing our finest moments.
Until we dapper up next month in black and white, yelp on!
