Bertrand at Mr. A's
The After Party hosted by Denise and Bertrand Hug
There was champagne, limoncello's and some wicked vintage wine being poured. It was all to celebrate Best Dressed 2009 Denise Hug. And what better way to do it than a late night supper at Bertrand At Mr. A's with its skytop views in downtown San Diego.... One of two restaurants Bertrand and Denise Hug own. The other being Mille Fleurs Restaurant in Rancho Sante Fe.
So champagne corks popped, the dinner came, and the conviviality went up quite a few notches.
Somehow two tables became the girls' table and the guys' table. And later it dissolved to guys and girls.
A fun moment came when Best Dressed 2009 Vince Bartolotta came in from another room, top hat, cane and all.
Bertrand at Mr. A's served up a superlative dinner that included lamb, salmon and a lot of je ne sais quoi!
Midnight came and went... and guests still lingered it was that much fun.
By the way, Bertrand Hug was Best Dressed 2008, and guests Valerie and Harry Cooper were both Best Dressed for 2008.
