On a very hot night over 500 guests walked the red carpet at the Boston Common Magazine Cover Star Reception held on the patio and park of Smith & Wollensky, located on Congress St. on the Ft. Point Channel at Atlantic Wharf. The private event hosted by Glen Kelley and Janice O’Leary of Boston Common welcomed Boston guests and celebrities, including Mad Men’s John Slattery and his family.

Chef Matt King and the Atlantic Wharf staff presented guests with a number of passed appetizers, a carving station with the new summer menu feature GEVALIA® Coffee & Cocoa Rubbed Filet, and summer desserts. On this steamy night the most talked about food feature was the iced raw bar, especially the jumbo shrimp.
Everyone kept cool and in good spirits with wine and vodka even though the temperature climbed over 90 degrees. The just-introduced Smith & Wollensky “Private Reserve” Sauvignon Blanc handcrafted by Kunde Family Estate was poured and Russian Standard Vodka served several signature cocktails and shots. Joss & Main, a high-end luxury home decorating and furniture website, was also a partner for the evening.
