For the third year in a row, we hosted the Chef Welcome Party (this year, in the The Circle Ballroom!) Take a peek inside this special kickoff event…

The exciting night for foodies and famed chefs featured a Cuban-inspired menu with unique stations and passed bites by The Breakers Executive Chef Jeff Simms, along with an array of wines selected by our Master Sommelier Virginia Philip.

The decor highlight of the night was a stunning ice sculpture at the entry to The Circle. Our team worked with the gurus at Styled Ice to create the incredible fruit-filled piece.
