Intimate dinner and drinks with Alfresco

While discussing event options with Alfresco around their involvement at Dreamforce, we decided on an intimate evening before people hit the big parties being planned. We produced an invite-only dinner and drinks event at Hotel Vitale in San Francisco and it was the perfect venue for the special guests.

Hotel Vitale has private suites available that easily convert
into event space, thanks to murphy beds and an outdoor deck.Guests arrived and came up to the 7th floor where they were checked in and directed to the bar set up in the room. Staff came around with passed hors d’oeuvres including duck confit bruschetta with whole grain mustard and pickled shallots; grilled prawn bruschetta with romesco sauce and chives; goat cheese and pumpkin crostini with toasted pepitas; and jalapeno macaroni and cheese. So delicious!

Guests sat outside on the deck, enjoying the view of the Ferry Building and a 3-course dinner starting with Star Route Farms baby greens with balsamic vinaigrette; a main course of filet mignon with grilled salmon, mashed potatoes and hericot vert; and chocolate ganache tart with burnt caramel sauce, whipped cream for dessert. Wait staff made sure the wine kept flowing throughout the entire dinner.

As guest finished the evening and headed out to their next event, each was given a box of macaroons as a ‘thank you’ for joining us. We heard multiple people say they enjoyed having a full sit-down dinner before hitting parties and loved that they could actually have conversation without raising their voices over a DJ. It was a great night and a great guest list!
