The legendary Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel held a special media preview of Luxe Hotels' new signature dish, the Luxe Guittard Chocolate Soufflé, at the restaurant and bar on June 5, 2014. The event brought out top clients, members of the Beverly Hills Chambers Committee and Luxe Hotels' generals managers from the City Center, Rodeo Drive, and Sunset Boulevard locations. I was immediately welcomed by Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel general Manager, Marcus Mueller, who led me to the hotel bar to enjoy cocktail hour. I had the pleasure of meeting Executive Chef, David O. Padilla, who was warm and welcoming as well as he prepared appetizers to warm up our taste buds for the debut of the new dessert. I enjoyed cocktails while engaging with Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce Commissioner, Dr. Sharona Nazarian and the beautiful general manager of Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel, Amy Commans.
We enjoyed appetizers such as the margherita and mushroom flatbread before sitting down for the unveiling of the new signature dish. I had the pleasure of dining in between the Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel Directory of Sales, Jody Katz, who was ravishing in red, and Special Events Manager, Michelle Sharp. As we shared the "Canned" themed new dish, Michelle shared with me "the Rodeo Drive Penthouse and Terrace is the only special event space open to the general public to host a special event. The space can accommodate up to 200 people max and can be used for more intimate celebrations." I got to see the rooftop venue for myself which was beautiful with views of Rodeo Drive and City Hall that are great for any occasion whether it be a baby shower, bar/mat mitzvah, business function or special event like Father’s day. They are open for breakfast, lunch, social hour and dinner so if you are just visiting or a local resident like me, I highly recommend paying the Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel a visit for a cocktail, meal or dessert like their new signature dish, the Luxe Guittard Chocolate Soufflé or renting their space for your next private event.
