Fine dining has returned to The Clubhouse at Lake Sconti with Jasmin Ilazovic bringing back his gourmet wine dinners—the first on Saturday, May 26.

With a limit of 60 wine lovers and a waiting list, guests were welcomed with soft music, a flute of champagne and passed crab appetizers. Tables were set with crisp white tablecloths, fresh assorted white flowers and gold chargers. The dinner featured four Italian wines that Ilazovic paired perfectly with his food selections and served by white gloved wait staff in precision presentation.

The palate cleanser of raspberry sherbet was served in a frozen half lemon, making for a colorful offering.

This elegant dinner signaled the return to fine dining at Big Canoe and offered something for everyone from the Chicken Stand music and casual food offerings to those who appreciate the finer living and gourmet meals that are now brought back by Ilazovic.

"Congrats to Jas and his crew for an excellent performance from the champagne greeting to the creme brulee," said Patricia Stimmel, one of a room full of delighted diners

A happy to be back clubhouse director, Ilazovic says he “is just getting started” with his improvements to clubhouse dining. He plans to offer wine dinners every three months among other surprises. For those who missed out on this first one, sign up early as reservations go quickly.
