Krug Champagne Dinner at a Los Feliz Residence

| November 30, 2016 | Parties


Krug hosted a magical dinner fit for the senses.

Foodies, symphony lovers and Champagne connoisseurs came out for the stunning Krug Champagne dinner, which was cohosted, by the L.A. Phil and its conductor Gustavo Dudamel. Held at a private home in Los Feliz (Madonna’s former residence), the fete brought together live classical music, gourmet food and hard-to-snag vintages, including the Krug 2002.

Guests such as Linda Britten and Judy Beckmen enjoyed a poolside reception that was overflowing with bubbly and delicious bites by renowned chef Michael Cimarusti. After munching on new potatoes topped with shaved black truffle, and breadsticks wrapped with raw salmon, partygoers sat down to a supper of Cimarusti’s signature seafood fare: grilled Maine lobster with sunchokes, chanterelles, hazelnuts and roasted grapes; and wild striped bass with honeynut squash and seasonal vegetables.

While the dinner was delicious, the performances from the L.A. Phil’s outstanding musicians certainly stood out. Prior to dessert in the garden, patrons were led to the home’s living room to listen to a string quartet’s performance of Ravel’s Movement No. 4. A perfect grand finale. ‒Meg McGuire
