MD Burbs Elites Finish Oversized Paella In Record Time

Posted by Mike Bishop

This past Monday Elites in the Maryland Burbs got to, in true Elite style, be spoiled to a diverse tasting of celebrity chef Jose Andre’s delectable treats at Yelp's Jaleo Jalloween Party. Jaleo Bethesda opened up its tall glass doors and newly renovated digs to an eclectic group of costume covered Yelpers. Elite’s got not only a taste of top tapas, but a taste of Jaleo's new modern clean feel.

Margaret Z found, “The special cocktails of the night delicious - [she] loved the hints of pumpkin and apple.” The apple cider drink, the barteders aptly named the "Incider" quenched the palettes of party goers while they enjoyed fall themed themed fun. With games like the Celebrity Chef Cauldron Game and Zombie Movie Picture Quiz, Elites released their inner child while dining on classy adult passed tapas and an inordinate amount of Jalloween candy.  “Dessert was amazing - I don't even consider myself a fan of custards, but that flan was mind-blowingly yummy,” continues Margaret Z

 The stage was really set and stolen by a Paella pan the size of a baby pool, a large hula hoop, or the clock face of Big Ben.  Yelpers really just ate it up. No but seriously, they ate it all up in record time.
