every day,” Lisson said.
Their October Love Affair event will
showcase the new features that the
event hall added during its renovations,
including added space that will

new garden, a bridal suite, an audio-visual
system and a full-service kitchen.

we can now serve faster, so the logistics
in the kitchen are much more comfortable,”
Michelin star recipient and “Iron Chef”

weddings. The Love Affair Showcase will
debut highlights of his menu.
