July 11th was a golden night at Lela for our established Minneapolis-St. Paul Gold Badge Elites, who have been on the Yelp Elite Squad for 5+ years! Lela’s menu boasts “classic, yet creative, & features contemporary seafood crudos, prime steaks & hand-made pastas rooted in classic technique”, and is located in Bloomington conveniently next to The Sheraton.
Celebrations and libations included cocktails, a photo booth, elegant passed appetizers, and 4 courses of divine dishes with wine pairings! Chef Stewart Woodman and his team impressed our veteran Yelpers from the first sip to the last bite. A crowd favorite was the Strip Loin, as Jasmine B pines, “I haven’t had such a tasty steak in ages and I want to eat it every day”!
Prizes, giveaways, and gourmet Lela salts were given out to our golden guests as well. Thank you to Lela, our Sommelier Davina, and photographer Joe Kenny. And of course thank you to our Gold Elites for your many years of eliteness and here’s to five more!
