24 Carrots in Paris

C’est magnifique! Love was in the air at our Parisian-inspired Chef’s Table dinner at The Richland. Guests were transported to the City of Love with pretty-in-pink details, romantic music, and a four-course fine dining experience prepared by the culinary team at 24 Carrots. Our newest venue in Old Towne Orange was the perfect setting, where guests were welcomed into the cozied-up courtyard which boasts a mature olive tree and complemented with a stylish crushed velvet and marble vignette by Found Rentals.

Suggested attire on the invite was “Parisian Chic”, and guests did not disappoint as they showed up adorned in berets, tulle, lace, pearls, and a variety of texture galore. Their outfits were only made better with a chic champagne flute or coupe in hand, as specialty cocktails prepared by The Richland bar team were tray-passed. A baby blue Vespa dressed in pink florals was the photo-moment star of the show during our chic courtyard cocktail hour.

Ballroom doors opened to reveal a breathtaking table for 25, framed by The Richland’s 40’ tall windows. The king’s table was fit for any royalty, decked with dramatic candles and stunning floral arrangements, accented by personalized menus and oversized black and white gingham bow napkins. Once seated, the 24 Carrots chefs welcomed the diners with an amuse-bouche paired with a tale of inspiration behind the dinner menu. Each course was slightly reminiscent of a Parisian breakfast for dinner. From the salad course which felt like a crudité of freshly picked farmer’s market veggies to the main course entrée which had the flavors of a croque madame and the elevated presentation of a classic French dish, all playful courses were presented elegantly and paired with a beverage.
