Lucky Duck views the Range Rover Autobiography Black unveiling in Beverly Hills.
The news is out – Land Rover revealed a vehicle that defines the pinnacle of luxury: The Range Rover Autobiography Black. The first look at this very fine machine happened last week at a private viewing in Beverly Hills. CNBC’s Phil LeBeau covered the story in person, and the Land Rover USA Twitter and Instagram accounts got fans in behind the scenes — including behind the wheel with a Bond Girl and Jon Lovitz.
It was personally exciting for me to be able to participate in the extraordinary reveal. As the headlights popped on from over the hill and Led Zeppelin blared from the speakers, I knew that this was going to be special. The Range Rover Autobiography Black made its way down to the party, in perfect step with the music, and the crowd was in awe. Goran Visnjic, our favorite ER Dr., and I were in awe.
Chef Josef Centeno creates a delicious tasting menu
While we enjoyed the vehicle’s entrance, Chef dazzled everyone with his exceptional menu.
As was dining at Baco Mercat
Before flying home, Mike helped me to get a reservation at the famous and delicious Baco Mercat.
I ordered a chocolate root beer soda, made from Chef’s special recipe and package up in a nifty bottle. It was yummy, but I have to admit that the wine Mike picked out for me was unreal.
As I perused the menu, my server was incredibly helpful and charming, wearing an apron that I could tell inspired one of the gifts in the Land Rover gift bag. I would have gotten a sandwich (baco), but because it was dinnertime, I went with some of my favorite dishes: Beet salad, Brussels sprouts, and the mussels. All three were absolutely incredible, and I have actually had dreams about this menu since leaving LA a week ago. Mike told me that the flavor pop in the mussels was cheese – didn’t see that coming!
My new bucket list
I actually made a personal goal to get back to LA asap and try Bar Ama and Orsa & Winston, too. I have to admit that the open kitchen at Chef’s newest restaurant Orsa & Winston is awesome. As I walked by, I actually saw Chef Josef cooking in the open kitchen! THAT was awesome.
