Serious Italian stargazing alert for February 17th

Food, fashion and fame are set to combine next Saturday in Rome, as the new Brunello Lounge & Restaurant hosts a launch party bringing out the A-List for a night of serious bling, Italian-style. The debut of this exciting new crossroads in the Eternal City means pageantry of a high order and the 450 guests are certain to experience la dolce vita on all sides. The event is set to feature a blinding array of entertainment figures, international celebrities, haute couture on parade, gastronomic virtuosity amid the participation of legendary luxury brands. Sunglasses definitely a must.
It’s not every day that a glamorous new space opens on the Via Veneto, with so much to recommend it. First, there’s the décor, a gold-gilded bar and restaurant space overlooking the famed avenue, a place to see and be seen. Next, there’s the menu, a Mediterranean symphony of innovative culinary creations by celebrity chef Daniele Sera. Mention should be made of the signature cocktails including Martini Chanel, which features drops of the celebrated No. 5 fragrance on the goblet’s stem, or a Cocktail Brunello Porte Bonheur which arrives with a luxury gift for the esteemed client. Finally, there’s the future: a hot spot, an instant classic, a place where you can rendezvous with friends in a spanking new drawing room, or settle into an intimate corner for a refined luncheon or supper accompanied by selections from an extraordinary list of 500 fine wines.
It doesn’t get any better than this, so if you happen to be around that night, gas up the Ferrari, drape your white scarf around your neck, polish your Ray-Bans, put a little Nino Rota on the iPod, practice saying “Ciao” in a cavalier way, and brush up on your air kisses. You’re guaranteed to have the time of your life, caro.
