Last night, Lesley and I headed down to King Plow in Atlanta for the Lexus Uncorked event and had an absolute blast! We both worked long days and were really tired from work, but as soon as we walked into the building, that definitely changed. As we first arrive, traffic was so backed up and that's how I knew that it was definitely a fun, popular event and I was definitely right. Lexus knows how to throw a party!
Let me start off by saying that the cars they had were GORGEOUS. They were shining throughout the night with their beautiful leather and perfect exteriors. I wish my pictures did them justice.
Wine was provided by Constellation brands featuring Meiomi and Saved Costal California Wines. I had previously tried Meiomi, but I hadn't even heard of Saved before. I tried the Chardonnay, Rose, Pinot Noir, and the blend that they provided. All were amazing, but I definitely have to say that the Rose was my absolute favorite. That was surprising to me because I typically go for reds. This Rose was light and crisp instead of your typical sweet rose. I think that is what sold me on it! I definitely see that bottle of rose in my wine fridge in the near future!
The food that was provided was signature dishes from top chefs and restaurants around the Atlanta area and these did not dissapoint, either. The chefs and restaurants that attended were Agua Azul, Star Ch3f, Chez Montier, Twisted Soul Cookhouse & pours, Chef Rob's Caribbean Cafe & upscale lounge & Tony Morrow's Real Pit BBQ. All of them had amazing food! Some of my favorites were the Salmon and rice dish, a seafood crostini and THIS (my absolute favorite):
The meat on this baby was SO tender and flavorful and the goat cheese added the perfect amount of cream to pull the dish together perfectly. Below, you can see the rest of our amazing dishes and a few other pictures from the fabulous event that Lexus threw! Thank you so much to Lexus for having us!
