Yelp Elites gathered at one of the hottest restaurants in Baton Rouge – City Pork Brasserie & Bar. The spotlight was on charcuterie and cheeses laid out on boards followed by Chef Ryan Andre's signature starters of Crispy Masa Oysters, Duck Confit Bruschetta, Sticky Wings and the Jefferson Greens Salad. Light bites were paired with William Hill wines and finished off with City Pork's specialty dessert – the bread pudding. Local chocolatier, Zocalisa, presented the group with their decadent chocolates and truffles to help bring a sweet end to the evening. New Yelper friendships formed and old ones bonded closer. It was a lovely evening to congregate in the spacious outdoor patio of the restaurant as guests sipped on City Pork Teas and toasted their wine glasses. This was yet another successful Yelp Elite Event in Baton Rouge! Malori Bezet wows us once again with her talented photography. Click links for pictures and reviews from this event.
