Moonlight and Music set the scene for the San Francisco Opera’s opening of its 93rd season with the revival of Verdi’s “Luisa Miller.”
As the evening’s guests in sleek suits and voluminous gowns ascended the steps of the War Memorial Opera House, McCalls was setting a scene of our own with Austrian-themed reception bites and a Tyrolean-inspired menu.
Diners nestled in a cozy tent on Grove Street by Hensley Party Rentals – under a stunning canopy designed by Riccardo Benavides of Ideas. Riccardo ensured the Austrian theme touched every detail of the event, from the Valet’s hats to the Opera House foyer in guise as a Tyrolean Castle.
McCalls Executive chef Josip Martinovic delighted guests with a Roasted Nectarine and Main Lobster Salad followed by Tyrolean Braised Short Ribs with Herbed Spaetzle, and a Duo of Tiramisu and Austrian Hazelnut Chocolate Roulade.
