- Sep. 4, 2012 - HOUSTON --
Houston – Once again, Mercury, the orchestra redefined, and Triniti Restaurant are collaborating in what promises to be another extraordinary culinary event – the second in an ongoing series – perfectly pairing live music choreographed by Mercury’s Maestro Antoine Plante to an eight-course dinner and wine tasting menu created by Triniti Executive Chef Ryan Hildebrand and Sommelier Fred Zennati. The dinner, “Autumn Concerto in Eight Courses,” will provide a sneak peek of what’s to come on the restaurant’s new fall menu, which will officially launch the next day, and promises to be a sensory journey of sight, sound and taste. It will take place at the restaurant on Sunday evening, September 23, 2012. Forty percent of all ticket sales will benefit Mercury by supporting the orchestra’s concerts and vital music education programs.
“It’s going to tough to top our last dinner,” says Hildebrand of the June event that received three standing ovations from the crowd, “We accomplished something I have never experienced. The execution and orchestration was an evening of pure beauty. We’re all looking forward to doing it again.”
As before, Plante will take on the task of selecting musical pieces that best exemplify the textures, flavors and components in each course. Each musical piece will evoke a particular vision, mood and/or feel specific to that menu item. “Though it’s very much a team effort, at the end of the day the music chosen will be based on my personal perception,”
says Plante. “The point is to stimulate conversation afterwards, whether you agree with the selections, or not.” To view a video slideshow of Triniti and Mercury’s first collaborative dinner, visit www.vimeo.com/
Dinner is $220 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Seating is limited. For reservations or additional information, call 713.527.9090 or contact email@example.com.
