Last Friday evening was just perfect in The District of Columbia, and for one particular client, it was the best time to gather friends for sunset cocktails and Birthday Celebration on the rooftop terrace of an elegant building overlooking Rock Creek Park and Georgetown.
Brian Beal Moore Catering refined our unique and exclusive “Global Street Fare” menu to reflect the client’s preferences, and to also include some personalizations on the potent potables menu.
We thought Martinis would be popular, as always, but we also packed a citrus juicer and offered freshly squeezed orange juice - so Madras and Screwdrivers were by far the most popular; and most remarked about cocktail creations. Let’s face it, fresh orange juice is far more superior to anything one simply purchases at a market.
The canapés, which were passed, elicited many compliments - one guest triumphantly exclaimed “This is DELICIOUS, Brian!” across the party after tasting the Grilled Halloumi with Kalamata Tapenade. (And let me remind you, I had never met any of these folk before… but they all now know Brian Beal Moore Catering!)
Other favorites were our Arepitas con Carne Mechada, our miniaturized version of the Venezuelan classic, as well as the fragrant and addictive Tom Kha Gai - a heady Thai soup that really opens up one’s palate with ginger, lemongrass, cilantro and house-made chili oil!
Of course, one of our most enjoyed offering is our Lilliputian Corn Dogs (on a stick!), which are gobbled up with grins, laughter, and Raspberry Dijon!
Our staff of servers, bartenders, and chefs, derive great personal satisfaction in making BBMC’s events extra wonderful by simply enjoying themselves being part of a production that is original, delicious, and of the best quality.
The celebratory mood was heightened by a rip-rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday” and the presentation of an incredible Gâteaux Merveilleux au Chocolat.
The party was such a success that the client asked us to extend an extra hour since a particularly good time was being enjoyed, and we gladly did!
