Last December, I noticed that Cuatro had started their new service offering. That post contains some photos inside the business.
On February 6, Cuatro had the grand opening of Marca and I received an invitation to attend.
I have been fortunate to attend many such functions because of this blog and I enjoy each and every one of them. I get to meet a lot of nice people and am usually the only gringo around.
While I rarely go out in the evening, there is no way I would ever pass up going to an event that has Chef Luis’ catering the appetizers. I took no photos of them as I was too busy eating.
Luis and others spoke before the ribbon cutting ceremony. This business compliments his restaurant because you can stop in and find many things to take home. There is also a large selection of wines to choose from.
The event was set up in Cuatro’s parking lot. My photos are in an album at the end of the post.
Antonio Singh was there and I hadn’t seen him in some time. I met several new people. One was Vielka Ledezma, who has VLedezma Photography. She was photographing the event for Luis. Her business card and contact infer is in the album.
I also met Edwin Mirands, who was shooting photos for his website VIPPanama.net. His card with contact info is in the photo album.
He obviously gets around to many of the events that are going on in this area. If you want to see a large number of the Chiriquí young ladies, just check out his site. Here are his photos of the inauguration. Who knows, you might even find me in one of the photos.
Lilliam and I were the first to arrive (a gringo trait) and about the last to leave (a Panamanian trait). There was music playing and there was a continuous video of the restaurant and food preparation. I also noticed that the video featured Finca Santa Marta, owned and operated by Ron and Kim Miller, where Cuatro gets many of its organic products.
If you stop into Restaurante Cuatro of the new Marca Cocina + Vino, tell them that you read about them on Chiriqui Chatter.
