Lawry's Catering Presents Concours d'Elegance at the Greystone Mansion & Park, Beverly Hills

Concours d'Elegance
at the Greystone Mansion, Beverly Hills 

It was the City of Beverly Hill's fourth year hosting this extravagant concours for vintage and classic automobiles manufactured prior to 1975.  It is an all day event from 10:00am to 4:000m featuring high-end vendors, lectures, fashion shows, Lawry's Catering along with other gourmet food vendors and beverages.  It is also a perfect opportunity to visit the historical Greystone Mansion.

The upper parking lot was packed full of antique cars sparkling just as they did
when they were new on the scene. 

For Lawry's Catering, the preparing starts weeks prior to the event to make sure enough staff is confirmed and as well as our kitchen team starts to prepare the menu for the guests.


Months of preparation all came together in the early morning hours as the
Lawry's Catering team discussed the details for the event.

Four major food areas were set up with Tuscan style seating and deep wooden tables and benches to match.  In the Formal Gardens, there were three buffets, three bars and a large dessert station
for guests to enjoy. 

In the Willow Pond, Lawry's Catering kept it fresh and light. 
Offering grilled carne asada, grilled vegetables, grilled corn on the cob,
 refried beans and avocado salsa with tostadas. 
The smell of the grill was wafting over the property and enticing guests all day.

Adjacent to the Willow Pond guests were able to get up close and
personal with some of the most unique rides around!

 Stella Artois - Beer Gardens

 Stella Artois was happy to be the beer sponsor for the event.  Guests enjoyed frosty cold beers in the Formal Gardens and the Willow Pond areas of the property.  Each guest was given a velvet bag to take their glass as a souvenir from the event.
