Raf’s Celebrates One Year Anniversary with VIP Filled Cocktail Party

Raf’s founders Jennifer and Nicole Vitagliano along with partners Executive Chef Mary Attea and Executive Pastry Chef Carmari Mick celebrated the one year anniversary of Raf’s amongst friends and regulars of the restaurant. The buzzy party kicked off at 9PM and went late into the night. Guests enjoyed an open bar with Martinis provided by Belvedere Vodka, spicy Margaritas and Palomas from Volcan Tequila, and a Ruinart Champagne toast with non-alcoholic beverages from San Pellegrino. The two floor event took over the entire restaurant and private dining room and featured an ice luge, gourmet negroni jello shots from Solid Wiggles, Caviar and Raf’s famous Carta and Croquembouche. Guests who ventured downstairs discovered a special Belvedere  Martini cart.

Guests arrived early and stayed late and were seen enjoying shots from the ‘birthday’ ice luge, indulging on caviar and potato chips, catching up with friends and flowing between the two party spaces all night long. Guests were overheard talking about their favorite Raf’s dishes (the chicken is a fan favorite) raving about the party, the must have Raf’s baseball hats and generally having a great time.

Guests included Olivia Wilde, Dianna Agron, Maxwell Osborne, David Schwimmer, Jeremy O.Harris, Waris Ahluwalia, Rebecca Dayan, Zach Weiss, Dria Murphy, Alejandra Alonso Rojas, Julia Moshy, Diana Bartlett, Chloe Wise, Pollyanna Rose, Jennifer Vitagliano, Nicole Vitagliano and more.

Guests in attendance received limited-edition Raf’s merch including baseball hats, lighters and temporary tattoos.
