A business event resulted in me going to this "members only" venue for a dinner and function. Not knowing much about this place, I quickly scanned the dinner menu on their website before heading out. Not impressed by what I saw, but then again, with the large numbers going, I figured it would be a standard set of plated dishes that would be served... and I was right. The meal could have been had at any run of the mill hotel restaurant, as there was nothing inventive or remotely interesting. I suppose having to satisfy a diverse crowd, and by diverse I really mean it - people from over fifty countries were in attendance. So the organizers must have selected the most neutral items they could from the kitchen. Anyhow, thought I'd report what I had. And if anyone has actually been there for a proper sit down meal (though not sure how many CH'ers are paying the $2,500 annual membership dues) and had any insights into the "real" food of the menu from executive chef, Liana Robberechet.

1) Crabcake, cream sauce
2) Pickled beet salad
3) Roast beef
4) Cheesecake
