Monsieur Marcel Beverly Hills Opening Celebrates UNICEF


In celebration of the Grand Opening of Monsieur Marcel, owners Katy Strouk, Stephane Strouk and Emile Malka welcomed more than 200 UNICEF supporters to their new 7,000 square foot French gourmet market and restaurant on Canon Drive in Beverly Hills.

Throughout the evening, guests sampled a glorious array of cheeses, charcuterie and other appetizing delights. Among treats were beef bourguignon, Maine lobster with mango coulis, duck confit and croque Marcel, all accompanied by private label French wines. There, too, were food stations offering domestic and imported artisanal foods, including EOS and John Kelly Chocolates, The Best Cookie, Crumble, Almont Water, Malibu Honey and an assortment of private label jams, spreads and truffle salts.

The host committee consisted of Marc Friedland, Melissa Lemer Mogel, Lulu Powers, Jane Ross, Darren Star and Kimm Uzielli, Sandra Nelson Winkler and Christina Zilber. More guests were Chef Leslie Durso, Carrie Brillstein, Donna Antebi, Shelly Curtis Litvak, Tiffany Lerman Sacks, Mary McDonald, Jennifer Perry, Clare Vivier, Joyce Ostin and Judy Winnick.

The original Monsieur Marcel opened 13 years ago at L.A.’s Farmers Market, followed by a second one 5 years later on Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade. Beverly Hills is the third location.
