gourmet picnic

Summer is going by quickly, and Hidden Lounge has been filling it's table with some great people and delicious food.

Last night we celebrated this beautiful season with Gourmet Picnic, a 4-course tasting menu devoted to some of our favorite summer treats.

Everyone brought a friend, or two, and a bottle of wine, or two, or three....Needless to say it was a great night.

We started the evening with some gourmet salad tasters. Our guests enjoyed Greek salad skewers and a pear and arugula salad served with cambozola cheese, pickled ginger and a balsamic reduction.

The next treat was our gourmet sandwich trio of a bite sized mini burger, tuna melt and asiago grilled cheese.

As a main course, we served a beautiful portobello burger, made purely of vegetables, feta, fresh herbs with a red wine reduction.

The meal was finished with our take on a gourmet ice cream sandwich- homemade waffles served with French vanilla ice cream, hazelnut spread and gooseberries.


It was a sensual summer evening and we want to thank everyone who came by to enjoy it with us. Hope to see you again soon at Hidden Lounge!
