Le Cirque’s famous French cuisine isn’t limited to its New York and Las Vegas locations this spring. The renowned restaurant’s new head chef, Olivier Reginensi, will be traveling to key cities across the country between now and June 1 to prepare special dinners at ClubCorp private clubs in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Orlando, among other cities. Each of the 10 participating private clubs will open its doors exclusively to 200 patrons (at $150 per person) for the event. The next dinner will be at Center Club in Costa Mesa, Calif., on April 6, followed by the Downtown Club in Houston on April 13, and the Tower Club in Dallas on April 20.
Not only is Le Cirque founder Sirio Maccioni bringing his cuisine across the country, but he is also delivering the spirit of his famous New York eatery by shipping his restaurant’s china to each venue to re-create the full Le Cirque dining experience. Additionally, guests will meet chef Reginensi, who joined Le Cirque in January, and dine with members of the Maccioni family. The dinners also include specially selected wines from around the world, such as a Col Solare Cabernet blend from Washington’s Columbia Valley and Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Rosé from France, and guests are given a copy of Maccioni’s new book, Sirio: The Story of My Life and Le Cirque so they can bring the Le Cirque dining experience home with them.
