"What a delicious multi-course meal. I worked for a French restaurant in Chicago in their catering division doing smaller, private house parties for about ten years. Please know that every detail of the meal was noticed and is to be applauded. Bravo!"
"Put aside that it's an extraordinary opportunity to have a chef of Robert's caliber prepare a private dinner. What really makes the night is the man himself -- warm and welcoming, with stories to tell and vinyl to spin. The best hospitality in town is at Chez Robert."
