The art of living

OH YES, IT'S JOHNNY! - Johnny Litton (The Philippine Star) - April 27, 2017 - 12:00am

Marco Polo Plaza Cebu (MPPC), the top-notch five-star hotel in the Queen City of the South, under the leadership of general manager Julie Najar, recently rolled out the red carpet for Cebu’s lovers of fine dining as Chaine des Rotisseurs Bailliage Cebu held its 24th induction and gala dinner.

With the theme “L’Art de Vie” or the art of living, the event saw modern art installations that welcomed guests at the hotel lobby. Other works of art infused into the entire gala dinner awaited the members of this international gastronomic society.

After the induction and the recognition of some members of the organization, guests enjoyed the delectable five-course dinner, each of which was paired off with the best European wine.

Excellent entertainment was witnessed in between courses, as well as the lavish set-up that included floral centerpieces, embellished candelabras and individually hand-painted show plates.

With excellent food, superb wine and great company, it was indeed the art of living at its finest.

Congratulations to the entire Marco Polo Plaza Cebu team for a successful gala dinner!
