I JUST ATTENDED THE BEST WEDDING EVER IN NEW YORK CITY. IT WAS AT A PLACE THAT I'VE ALWAYS HEARD ABOUT AS BEING BEAUTIFUL AND VERY EXCLUSIVE, BUT HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO EVEN GET INTO UNTIL I WAS INVITED TO A WEDDING THERE A FEW WEEKS AGO. IT WAS THE UNIVERSITY CLUB, A PRIVATE CLUB ON 5TH @ 54TH STREET. THIS BUILDING AND MAIN DINING ROOM WAS SO GRAND AND BEAUTIFUL, APPARENTLY A MCKIM, MEAD AND WHITE DESIGNED BUILDING.THERE WERE OVER 300 PEOPLE AT THIS WEDDING AND THERE WAS STILL PLENTY OF ROOM FOR DINING AND DANCING (THE BALLROOM HAD A CEILING MURAL THAT REMINDED ME OF THE BASILICA IN ROME). WHAT EXCELLENT HOR'S D'OEUVRES! THE DINNER WAS OUSTANDING ( WE HAD ASPARAGUS & MORSEL SALAD, RACK OF LAMB ROASTED WITH HERB DE PROVENCE AND LEMON SOUFFLE) AND THE SERVICE WAS SOME OF THE BEST I'VE RECEIVED IN ANY NYC LOCATION.
IT DID NOT FEEL LIKE JUST ANOTHER HOTEL BALLROOM AND CATERING HALL, RATHER MUCH MORE PRIVATE AND EXCLUSIVE. MANY OF THE PEOPLE I SPOKE WITH THAT EVENING FELT THE SAME WAY, AND MOST OF THEM DID NOT EVEN KNOW THIS TREASURE EXISTED IN NYC UNTIL THEY ATTENDED THIS AT THE UNIVERSITY CLUB. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEDED IT TO YOU BOTH. GOOD LUCK!
