Guests were greeted with a an open bar, full buffet and a naming contest! Dry Tour is looking to rename their restaurant and held a contest for the Elites to help them choose. The Elite to come up with the new name will receive a free dinner for two!
The bar had several beer and wine options plus specialty cocktails. Sarah M shares, "I especially liked the soju infused cucumber sake drink... It tasted like juice (and really got me by the end of the night!) The J-pop sparkling drink was also really good... It was a peach flavored alcoholic beverage that again, was strong but tasted delicious."
Hungry Yelpers noshed on an incredible buffet spread of roasted asparagus with aged balsamic, fiscalini cheddar and speck, papa a la huancaina bites, plus mini gougeres, lemon shrimp with eggplant caviar and braised short ribs. In the words of Sara L, "The Batch 19 lager braised short ribs were fantastic. The meat just easily pulled apart and was so juicy and flavorful. That taste just stayed with me and kept me wanting more. The veggie mash was a good compliment to the meat."
