We received great accolades for last year’s tour de force event at Mourad. The culinary complexity of Chef Mourad Lahlou’s captivating cuisine, delicious flavors and perfect execution of his masterful dishes was memorable indeed. I felt this would be a perfect occasion to return for yet another great performance.

The San Francisco Chronicle named Lahlou a Rising Star Chef, and after a successful stint on Iron Chef he went on to revolutionize Moroccan cuisine. Perhaps an unusual undertaking for someone who earned a master’s degree in economics, but somewhat explains his intellectual attack with cuisine.


Last November I hosted a tribute event at Pied à Terre in London for my late friend, and former London Branch Chairman, Andrew Brodie. At the event, I presented a selection of California Cabernet that is a quintessential representation of the André Tchelistcheff period in California winemaking, along with a few other special treats. The wines were outstanding and in top form. Since they are at peak quality, this is an outstanding opportunity to enjoy these impeccably cellared rare California Cabernets.


Our event will be held in their private boardroom.


Please Note:

Due to the complexity of his tasting menu seating is limited.


Best wishes,
Jack Rubyn, Chairman
