Dinner with the Conductor

This past Thursday, a select group of musicians from the Stanford Symphony Orchestra got the chance to dine with Maestro Anna Wittstruck at FloMo’s famous┬áChef’s Table.

The Chef’s Table is situated in the heart of Florence Moore’s dining hall, curiously juxtoposed with the standard dining hall fare. Although normal dining hall food is all-you-care-to-eat, the Chef’s Table is a three-course meal freshly prepared and specifically for those who obtain a reservation. Each menu comes with a hidden theme, which is revealed by the chef himself after dessert is served.

After drinks and an appetizer, our main course arrived, elegantly plated with produce grown fresh at Stanford:


Overall, we enjoyed getting to chat with Anna and each other outside of our normal orchestra setting. Because orchestra rehearses on Thursdays starting at 7pm, we quickly rushed off Bing after polishing off our desserts!
