CRAVE Kimpton 2013
The predictions of dire weather forced the Hotel Monaco to relocate its June 13 festivities indoors, but spirits were hardly dampened. Music resounded on several floors as Kimpton loyalists enjoyed inventive cocktails and nibbles from the chain’s talented chefs and mixologists. Poste provided pork rillettes, Alexandria’s Brabo offered blinis generously laden with salmon and crème fraiche, the American Brasserie in Baltimore tempted with a bacon sausage dog, Urbana near Dupont Circle proffered chilled pea soup, and there was ever so much more. The party atmosphere was fueled by the equally tempting libations.
