Hi Debra and Edward,

Thank you so much for this beautiful write up.  I could not add another word since it really and fully describes who we are and what La Silhouette is all about.  NY Times step aside – LOL… 

Thanks again and please continue to spread the love.

Thank you for featuring allium restaurant + bar in the January 2010 edition of Luxury Experience. We were very excited to read about your positive experience at allium and its further reach in TripAdvisor Best Web Links / Professional Advice as a review source. The Google rankings are indeed terrific, so kudos to you for your successful marketing efforts! On the Mezze Restaurant Group side of things, we have started spreading the word about the materials on Facebook and Twitter.

Dear Debra,

Thank you for the extensive Luxury Experience coverage of The Culinary Institute of America and its programs and restaurants. We were impressed by the number of materials you were able to generate from attending the Holiday Boot Camp at our Hyde Park campus. Your resulting materials provide a wonderful showcase for The CIA! We are eager to monitor how your extensive exposure translates into increased traffic for our cooking classes and restaurants.

My thanks,

Thank you so much for sending us the articles promoting Bacco and the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Cocktail Pairing Dinner in New Orleans. It was a pleasure working with you and Edward as Guest Bar Chefs over the summer, and I hope we have the chance to work together again in the future.

“I would like to thank you for the response that I received from the article on my restaurant; from people from different countries like Italy and Sweden, it was amazing. I never expected to receive phone calls from people making reservations from those countries, from the Luxury Experience  material. It was interesting to show readers how some restaurants like us are trying to make a difference in our concept, food and style, without losing that personal touch with our clientele.

Thank you, Luxury Experience  for giving us this opportunity to be part of your extraordianry group  of restaurants, with special thanks to Debra for being the person involved in this material.”

“Thank you to Debra C. Argen and the Luxury Experience team for an excellent article  on the wine pairing dinner at Amma. I think this may be the first time in the United States that Indian cuisine has been paired with wine. I have been to many places in the world and it has taken me a long time to find real wine to pair with Indian cuisine. Thank you from myself and the Amma team.”
