The above photo makes me more happy than you might know. When I started this thing, I could only dream that I would be able to gather people like this around a dining room table. I couldn't have picked a better setting than the Chef's Table at The Osprey Tavern.
The people of Orlando are pretty inspiring. It's quite an exciting time to be here. We had Entrepreneurs that are just starting out mixed with more seasoned ones. The stories of how they started were incredible. I was so honored to sit at the table w these folks.
THE FOOD. Seriously. The Food. It was a double treat to dine at The Osprey Tavern, because we had the Executive Chef from Seito Sushi as the Guest Chef for the night. It was one of more extravagant meals I have ever had. So many incredible flavors and textures from around the world. And, of course, the Presentation was exquisite.
The conversation around the table was rich w the past of Orlando and the Future of Orlando. Amazing things are happening in this City and even more is on it's way.
We didn't get many photos of the wine & sake pairings with the Courses, but they were impeccable and hand selected by Jason Chin, the Owner of The Osprey Tavern and Seito Sushi.
All in all, it was an incredible night that won't soon be forgotten. Much thanks to Jason & Sue Chin for Hosting The Dinner Party Project and to Chef Austin Boyd and his team for knocking our socks off.
If you haven't tried The Osprey Taven or Seito Sushi, I would highly recommend it.
