Supper Club at the Boheme with Special Guest Spanish Artist Luis Burgos

Written By Scott Joseph On September 20, 2012

burgosFor our next Supper Club, we’re combining food, wine and art into a very creative evening. We’ll be at the Boheme in the Grand Bohemian hotel in downtown Orlando. Executive chef Rene Nyfeler and his team have put together a wonderful menu. And our friends at Vibrant Rioja will be matching up the wines. The dinner will be Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 6:30 p.m. at the grand Grand Bohemian. Click this link for Supper Club Reservations.

If you’ve been to the Boheme before you know that fine art is a big part of the experience. The Kessler Collection of paintings and sculptures decorates the restaurant and public areas of the upscale hotel. But we’re taking it up a notch. Joining us for the evening will be Luis Burgos, a painter visiting from Logrono, Spain. Burgos will be heading to an art event in New York, but he’s accepted an invitation to stop over in Orlando on the way. (At his last New York event, six hundred people showed up to meet him and see his paintings.)

Burgos is a figurative artist who uses bold, vibrant colors in his paintings, which frequently depict acrobats, gypsies, magicians and circus performers.

We’ll begin with a reception in the hotel’s art gallery — where else? — where we’ll sip on a sparkler and nibble on tarte flambe and feuillete d’escargots. The five-course dinner will be served in the audaciously decorated Boheme dining room, just off the Bosendorfer Lounge. See below for the full menu.

I’m pleased to offer this very special dinner for $85 total (tax and gratuity are included). That’s less  than you would pay for the food alone if you were to show up for dinner and order it a la carte. And the opportunity to taste 13 fine wines — well, you can do the math on that. (Wait, here, I’ll do it for you: if you were to purchase the wines by the bottle it would be over $456.) You can see what a wonderful opportunity this it to try some delicious food, excellent wines, and to meet a world-renown artist. As always when attending the Boheme for dinner or drinks, your valet parking is complimentary (you knew that, didn’t you?).

The Scott Joseph Supper Club with special guest Luis Burgos will be Tuesday, October 9, 2012. Reception will begin at 6:30; dinner will be at 7 p.m. Seating is limited.
