“We all had a great time!” …and this comment, by one of Al Ain members, seems to sum it up nicely.
The spectacular setting of the Mercure Grand, at 915m above sea level near the top of Jebel Hafeet, was the venue for the last evening event before Ramadan and the summer break, and it was a great pleasure to welcome many guests as well as members.
Following a friendly champagne reception, Executive Chef Sylvio Ndongo and his team demonstrated their accomplished culinary skills with an excellent and varied five-course dinner. The cuisine was French in style, cooked to perfection, and was accompanied by well-matched French wines, finishing with a digestif and coffee.
We were delighted that Chaîne member Philippe Garcon (of Le Privée fame!) had travelled up from Mercure Centre Hotel in Abu Dhabi to provide his support, and was able to join us for the reception.
Many thanks to everyone at the hotel who contributed to making our dîner amical a great success, we look forward to another event at Mercure Grand Jebel Hafeet next year!
