LA Magazine Hidden Pop Up Dinner

Los Angeles Magazine hosted the Hidden Pop up dinner, in part hosted by Lexus, at Malibu Café in Calamigos Ranch, CA. The atmosphere was reminiscent of a family barbecue, relaxed with a touch of elegance that any event hosted by Lexus and LA Magazine always lend. popup

Live music and bountiful drinks ( Maker’s Mark and Karma Tequila) flowed as guests enjoyed 3 courses – a summer salad of red and yellow endive, radicchio, frisee, shaved pecorino, apples figs walnuts with an herb-lemon vinaigrette; followed immediately by the truffle and red wine braised short ribs, served over parmesan polenta, wild mushroom fricassee, and lemon asparagus doused with truffle jus. The wine pairing for these courses were Saddlerock Chardonnay and Semler Cabernet Sauvignon. Lastly, what outdoor event is complete without S’mores prepared over an open flame? Certainly not this hidden Pop-up dinner! Guests were ushered to the S’mores station after dinner where an array of chocolates and graham crackers lay for a buffet-style s’mores dessert.
