La Ultima Cena at Allium

On Saturday, January 23rd, the MDpr team joined forces with Genuine Entertainment Chicago to create an unforgettable dinner party. La Ultima Cena — the final dinner seating on the last Saturday of the month — catered to 100 beautiful guests in a relaxing yet cool atmosphere. Held at Allium Restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel, La Ultima Cena presented attendees with Executive Chef Kevin Hickey’s new winter menu — a four course dinner paired with elegant wine choices. The fashionable guests enjoyed a relaxing evening with a soundtrack by DJ Konsept (Edwin Morales), who added a subtly upbeat ambiance to the evening. There were two celebrations to acknowledge that evening, so two Sugar Hills Bakery cakes were brought out in their honor. And after all the candles were blown out, the post-dinner cocktail party was in full force until the end of the night.
