A beautiful night in the park!
Carl Schurz Park Conservancy hosted their annual friends gathering – a night we had the opportunity to cater and be a part of. From snacks, petit passed meals and specialty cocktails to fun entertainment, great music, and even better of friends, the night was an exceptional cocktail party to kick-off outdoor events.
Executive Chef, Mark Russell and his team executed a delicious menu that pleased all palettes. The menu was purposefully served on sustainable and eco-friendly products. The snack of the night included Chef Marks Bird Feeder Bar Snack – both sweet and spicy toasted nuts and seeds, served in a bird feeder-like dish to be served with an eco-friendly spoon into palm leaf boats.
