The talented culinary artists at Neuman’s Kitchen prepared and served mini bites that were beyond delicious. Guests enjoyed mini Montauk lobster roll, tuna tartare, mini BLT, truffle grilled cheese, passion fruit snobinettes (I had plenty of those) and more. I don’t normally break for commercials mid story but Neuman’s was that good.
