Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino presents ‘Evolution’: Raise the curtain on a culinary cabaret

Diego Lemasson, Beverage & Food Director at the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino is proud to announce a once-in-a-lifetime culinary experience coming up at the resort. The exclusive dinner has a very limited capacity of 20 covers and will be a completely different concept than the regular upscale wine pairing dinners. This ‘Evolution’ will sweep you off your feet in all senses: taste, sight, hearing and touch. Make sure you are part of this sensation!

The Stage

Friday March 20 and Saturday March 21 a part of the Renaissance Convention Center will be transformed into another dimension. Imagine a night filled with quality when it comes to food, drinks, entertainment and setting. A night full of surprises that will tantalize your senses. A night where you will be seated on a sliding table that moves the food in front of you and the curtain of this culinary cabaret will be drawn to show you another world. “Besides the impeccable food and wines, entertainment will be an important part of this out-of-the-box concept,” says Lemasson.

The Spectacle

The director explains that this will not be a standard upgraded dinner, it is much more. “Rather a full experience where many other things happen. The moment you arrive you will be taken on a journey and you do not really know what to expect, it will be a surprise. We try to promote it as basic as we can. We do understand that some guests wish to have some revelations so we informed that the theme will be around the four seasons; winter, spring, summer and fall.” The menu will be available in front but we recommend people not even to look at it and let themselves be surprised, he continues. “Be open to dive into the experience. Enjoy an upscale evening full of surprises. Come with an open mind willing to try new things. It will captivate you!”

The Players

This event is set up in partnership with wine wholesaler Pepia Est. Some of the exclusive wines presented on the evening will be Perrier Jouët Grand Brut Champagne, France, Rombauer Merlot Napa Valley California, USA and Taylor Fladgate 20yo Port, Portugal. “We are already six months in preparation and have about 40 people working on it, says Lemasson who is in charge of all the operations of the resort including all the bars and restaurants, convention center, casinos, beverage operations and private island. “All the fun parts of the hotel,” he jokes. He has close to 400 people under his wings. “Special events is what Renaissance is known for. We did some pop-up dinners with themes and have the Rose All Day lunch as well as the Bartenders Brawl, all growing events. Now we are focusing on an elevated event which will be ‘Evolution’. On the long-term we wish this to be a yearly event to look forward to.”
