The Yelp Elite Squad kicked off 2019 with a memorable tasting event at Bourbon Raw, an inviting new addition to historic South Norwalk. Welcomed in from the winter chill, sixty attendees were instantly warmed right up with a signature bourbon cocktail – a testament to the restaurant’s hospitality. The night proceeded with a special tasting menu featuring some of Bourbon Raw’s most popular dishes.
Appetizer highlights included an artisanal cheese board, warm goat cheese skillet, and fried oysters, while the autumn chop with butternut squash, apples, and gorgonzola made for a fabulous salad course. Since it’s perfect comfort food weather, guests enjoyed seafood risotto and buttermilk fried chicken with brussels sprouts, and finished off the night with banana spring rolls – a creative spin on dessert. Throughout the night, Yelp Elites strengthened their photography skills with handy new food/selfie phone lights and came away with some great shots.
