After our amazing day at The Four Seasons it was time to scurry downtown to the Soho House for the main event.
We love the Oscars and after hosting a fun viewing party last year at my place, we thought it would be even better to have a bit more space and invite more people. We booked the private room at Soho House, created a custom menu that coincided with the Best Film nominees and a delicious specialty drink menu courtesy of Grey Goose.
Gravity: Meteors or meatballs, spicy tomato, pecorino
Her: Assorted pizzette – She encourages him to eat pizza
12 Years A Slave: Mini blackberry tart – the blackberry Chiwetel’s character uses to write the letter
Dallas Buyers Club: Short rib, horseradish, gruyere sliders – the one meal Mcconaughey’s character eats is a steak dinner so the short rib slider was our nod to that
Captain Philips: Beef empanadas – we wanted samosas as they’re eaten in Somalia (where the pirates are from in the movie) but they couldn’t make them small enough so empanadas were a delicious alternative
Philomena – French fries – the movie set in Ireland and though we could have served salad with croutons (the one thing Dench’s character mentioned she loved) we went with a potato dish that we knew everyone would gobble up
Nebraska- Beer battered fish – the main character drinks a ton of beer and most people enjoy beer battered anything
Wolf Of Wall Street: Spicy shrimp, chili aioli – a stand in for the lobster that Leo’s character throws at the FBI
And we drank (see menu and recipes HERE) Le Fizz and Lower East Side were my fave!
There wasn’t enough seating but look how chivalrous these boys are?
My favorite little guy even showed up in a tux!
We had mini awards and gift bags at the party and Janet (above in red) won as our Best Dressed – how fab is she? Her prize was a Felony Case snakeskin iphone 5 case. Because not all of you were able to join us at our event, we wanted to give you all a chance to win 1 of 2 of our insanely packed gift bags!!!
Included in the bag:
