Have you ever been to a Menu Tasting? My husband and I had the opportunity to do so with The Tampa Bay Bloggers at ¡CUATRO at TPC Tampa Bay.
While I get the opportunity to do a lot of fun events, I rarely get "dressed up", so an opportunity to be out with hubby at a Golf Course (his favorite place to be) was perfect. I even got to sport some beautiful jewelry.
The patio are of ¡CUATRO is breathtaking. There were no golfers out that I could see. Hubby had just played this course the week before, as well as many times prior, but had never went to the bar/dining area. No time like the present.
The entryway [not pictured] is quite modern and sleek. The bar area is clean and crisp with large windows overlooking the golf course.
There is a lot of great natural light.
While wandering around ¡CUATRO,I had a great glass of Sangria. I'm not big on alcohol consumption, so to have this glass was a real treat.
And it was delicious to boot!
Upon entering the room, they had a staging area, showcasing the incredible talents and opportunities that ¡CUATRO can provide to potential clients. Who wouldn't love their Bridal table to be this exquisite?
There were several stations of food, but we kept coming back to the simplicity of meats and cheeses. The Bruschetta was fresh and home made and the chips were light and airy. The presentation the food was definitely elegant and having both sides available to guests is a great feature. It's all about placement. Could you imagine yourself at an event, grabbing tasty foods and mingling with friends and family?
Not only did we get to sample great food, but I was able to see many great friends, like Steph from Orangespoken. Our fearless leader, Denise [RunDMT] was making sure to get all kinds of great commentary from the bloggers at the event. She was getting everyone live on Periscope and if you were able to watch, we hope you enjoyed the broadcast enough to make the trip to ¡CUATRO.
Meats and Cheeses were not the only foods we were able to try.
There were two desserts. One as delicious to sample, as the other
Berry Cobbler. It has Raspberries, Blueberries, and Blackberries. Just scrumptious.
The Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Mousse was a surprise. It was topped with graham cracker sprinkles, peanuts, and popcorn. Yes, Popcorn! A surprising, yet delectable combination
We did eat actual food. The Chorizo Meatball Jambalaya was mouth watering wiuth Long Grain Rice, Braised Chicken, Sweet Peppers, Tomato, Grilled Scallio. The Jerk Chicken Wings seriously did a number on my taste buds.
My date for the evening couldn't have been more pleased with the experience, the ambiance, and of course, the company.
