In honor of the arrival of two-season "Top Chef" veteran CJ Jacobson and his new dinner menu at The Mercantile in Hollywood, restaurateur George Abou-Daoud hosted a little soiree Wednesday night where guests were treated to a first taste. From the free-flowing drinks, gourmet bites and music, the night was a celebration of wine, cheese, delicious food and dining with a fantastic ambiance.
