On Tuesday guests gathered at Le District's chef's table to celebrate the acclaimed resort, La Mamounia. With a sommelier and chef brought in from the luxurious hotel (which you've definitely seen captured by all of your favorite bloggers on Instagram), we were transported into a Moroccan dream complete with candlelight and fitting floral arrangements.
"For those properties, like La Mamounia, and restaurants – and those expressions of place who really deliver on the authenticity, the culture, and the feeling of being there, La Mamounia is the absolute nes plus ultra of Marrakech," said Editor-in-Chief of Condé Nast Traveler, Pilar Guzman.
The menu ranged from a selection of fresh Moroccan salads to a delectable lamb confit. Throughout the evening guests mingled over glasses of La Mamounia's own wines, which were accompanied by an intimate discussion by the wine-maker himself.
All in all, an incredible evening celebrating an exceptional and dynamic property perfect for jet-setters.
