Now You See It, Now You Don’t!

★ ★ ☆ ★ ★

The Fox Theatre has many, many stories. But when we began our new partnership a year ago this past July, we realized that they did not have a “food story”, even though there have been celebrations and other special events—that had a food component—at the Fox for many decades!

We presented a new Fox Food Story, one that we hope AFFAIRS at the FOX special event hosts and guest will add to for years to come.

One of the three key elements of the Fox Food Story is the ‘shows’ that are performed on the Fox Theatre stage. If a client so requests, we can tailor a menu to a show that’s on the Fox stage during the time of their event—perfect if your events includes tickets to that show!

I’m particularly excited to share with you a special menu that our culinary teams has created to accompany The Illusionists, on stage at the Fox Theatre Tuesday, September 27 through Sunday, October 2, 2016.
 

“Inspired by grand illusion, levitation,
mind-reading, and disappearance”

 
There are surprises—illusions even—around every bite of our The Illusionists menu, including our—what you might think is sushi—Cheeseburger “Sushi”, a client favorite! Another is our Inside-Out BLT—an attendant tops two fried green tomatoes filled with a basil leaf, goat cheese and smoky bacon with jalapeno tartar sauce!

There are some surprises in the dessert options, too! One is our Miniature Apple Pie Carrot Cupcake that’s topped off with maple cream cheese. Surprise! It has an apple pie bite inside! Another unexpected treat is found in our Cherry Pie Chocolate Cake…there’s an entire cherry pie baked inside of the chocolate cake that’s finished with a rich chocolate frosting!

We had great fun creating this entertaining menu for your AFFAIRS at the FOX event!

Oh, and we’re no stranger to seeing our food disappear! It’s not a trick and it’s not an illusion…we see it all the time. But it’s evidently a secret between our chefs and our clients’ guests. *wink, wink*

Back in the Egyptian Ballroom, we’ve pulled more than one proverbial rabbit out of our proverbial hats.

While you may have seen magicians make an entire car disappear, we can make an entire wedding ceremony setup in the majestic Egyptian Ballroom disappear, and almost instantly replace it with gorgeously appointed dining tables and buffet stations…all while guests are momentarily enjoying cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres in the Grand Salon & Terrace. It makes for a gasps-all-around “Big Reveal”!

We endeavor to make every special event at the Fox Theatre a magical experience. Please, let us know how we can, for you, make what may seem only an illusion become a reality. Enjoy the show!

Meanwhile, behind the scenes…

We’ve created a special menu for the run of Cabaret, on stage at the Fox Theatre Tuesday, November 1 through Sunday, November 6. Enjoy that one, too!
