Bruno Jamais Celebrates Five Years of Fine Dining

The very elegant Bruno Jamais Supper Club, located on Manhattan’s exclusive Upper East Side, recently celebrated its five-year anniversary with a blow-out bash hosted by KMR Communications and Katherine Rothman.

The crowd celebrates five fabulous years with Bruno Jamais.

A lifelong dream of owner Bruno Jamais, the chic restaurant nestled in a luxurious Mansion opposite the grand façade of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is home to the traditional supper club. His lifetime exposure to the restaurant business, beginning with his father’s restaurant in Paris, allowed him to cultivate both vision and design of his dream.

Welcome to an evening of fine wine, fine food and pleasure.

The five-year anniversary party featured the cream of Manhattan’s crop of event planners, publication and media professionals, public relation firm honchos and other industry related professionals; journalists, writers, socialites and celebrities of the stage and screen.

Always generous, the hors’d'oeuvres flowed as free as the wine. Bright orange salmon caviar, with a delicate pop and mild aftertaste of light to medium saltiness, like a salted chip, served on blinis to delicious miniature crab cakes with a dab of light tarter sauce atop the tot shaped crab cake.

The mouth watering Scallops 4 ways with Caviar.

Tempura popcorn shrimp and boiled shrimp were served with traditional cocktail sauce. Sesame chicken in a golden brown sauce and spooned salmon resting atop asparagus were served in oversized decorative spoons. By the end of the evening, the caviar was being spooned up and also served in the decorative oversized spoons.  All the hors’d'oeuvres were very tasty, a sampling of the specialties created by Bruno's Master Chef, John Keller.

With two wine cellars to cater to even the most exclusive needs, the magnificent wine selection ranges from moderate priced at $40.00 per bottle to the amazing $9,000.00 per bottle.  Mr. Jamais’ generosity in allowing his restaurant to be used for events has allowed me to sample both wine and hors’d'oeuvres. The white wine, even for my unsophisticated palette, was smooth and light with a subtle fragrance, and at first sip, charming and inviting.

The elegant entrance way filled with the extensive Wine selection.

Master Chef and culinary genius John Keller offers magnificent creations fusing Asian and French cuisine to create an entrée menu featuring Scallops 4 Ways, A Duo of Lamb, and Porterhouse for Two with Bordelaise sauce and potato gratin.  Appetizers include Beluga Caviar, at the high end and more moderately, and Chef Keller’s specialty Lobster Brulee, thinking of crème brulee, this dish offers generous portions of succulent lobster with a sweet sauce and mushroom duxelle.

Desserts are a must have and range from the sorbet de jour to chocolate soufflé. If you are going for dessert, go all the way and get the soufflé.

The chocolate Souffle. Don't leave without it.

Bruno's anniversary evening was a smashing success with a host of celebrities and well-wishers in attendance to usher in the next five years. Grey’s Anatomy star James Pickens, model Anna Kulinova, French artist Cyrille Margarit, TV host and always celebrity chic Cognac Wellerlane, Fox Five Meteorologist Nick Gregory, as well as Black Tie International curator Gloria T. Cessler were among the party goers.

Also in attendance was New Zealand Director Anna Wilding and Event Planner Stacy Prince from Evantagious Events who recently hosted a benefit for Magazineliteracy.org, an organization whose efforts toward stamping out illiteracy one magazine at a time deserve mentioning.

Prior to opening the supper club, Bruno was the Maitre D' at the exclusive Restaurant Daniel, home to internationally known restaurateur Daniel Boulud. He also worked with Alian Ducasse, molding his vision with both opportunities. His life has centered on bringing his dream to reality.
