Multiple samples were had.
First, the "moist unusual" piquant cucumber-infused cocktails courtesy of Hendrick's Gin.
Second, the earthy rabbit rillets prepared with Spanish brandy atop a crispy herbal 'po-boy' crostini from The Durham House.
Third, the lighter-than-air yet delightfully rich in botanical flavor caramelized cheese soufflee from La Table.
