On the 21st of March 2018, Austen Morris Associates’ Senior Partners Jon Holand and William Coppin hosted another successful Private Client Dinner (PCD) at the newly-opened Bellagio by MGM Shanghai.
As Bellagio’s first location outside of North America, the hotel raises the bar of luxury in the already opulent Bund District. Set on the banks of the Suzhou River, the PCD was held at Bellagio’s premier restaurant, LAGO by award-winning chef Julian Serrano, helmed by Executive Chef Jair Gudino Chavez.
Our clients and their guests had the opportunity to relax and network whilst enjoying a sparkling reception with mouthwatering canapés before heading to the Cupola for dinner. Once seated, our guests enjoyed a perfectly crafted 4 course meal starting off with a choice of Barbabietola – mixed beetroots, mascarpone & peach vinaigrette or Brodo Fruitty Di Mare – seafood broth, mussels & vegetable julienne, followed by Chitarra Alla Carbonara – lardo, black pepper & ricotta-parmesan fondutta. The main was a perfectly cooked ABG Filletto - Angus beef tenderloin, red wine sauce & thyme potatoes. Dinner was rounded of nicely with a trio of desserts – amalfi, panna cotta & tiramisu. All dishes were complimented with wine pairings throughout the course of the evening.
On an evening like this, Austen Morris Associates celebrates the opportunity to strengthen our personal relationships with clients, as well as establish relationships with the friends and business associates who joined as guests of our clients.
The highlights of the event included the spectacular views from the Cupola, Executive Chef Jair Gudino Chavez who also took time to meet the guests, along with the presence of AMA Founding Senior Partner Greg Morris, who flew in from South Africa for the event.
Thank you to our Austen Morris Associates clients and their guests who joined us for this unforgettable evening.
