The Country Club Grand Opening Gala

| March 9, 2018 | Parties

The Country Club Grand Opening Gala gave O.C.’s glam gourmands the dish on the sleekest spot in town.

THE PARTY Talk about a grand entrance: When The Country Club debuted in Costa Mesa, it did so with all the pomp and circumstance befitting what it’s bringing to the O.C. culinary industry—another stunner from restaurant icons Mario Marovic and Andrew Gabriel, and sophistication and style in every dish and detail. THE GUESTS An invite-only pre-party was held the weekend before the eatery opened to the public and gave an exclusive list of epicureans a private experience inside its storied surrounds (the former home of the Pierce Street Annex). John and Ursula Braeger, Melissa Knode and the men of the hour lounged in the booths, ordered cocktails barside and hit the dance floor when the jazzy Nick Waterhouse made a surprise showing. THE HIGHLIGHTS The best part? The premiere was only the beginning of the food, drink and scene to come—and we can’t wait for the next taste. -Kristen Schott
