Wow – am I behind in posts or what? This event actually took place on the 1st of May, and I got the pictures uploaded to Flickr immediately, but never got around to doing an actual writeup of the event. It was held at the Smith building on 4th, a perfect backdrop for the food.
I love going to events like these – and this one was especially dear to my heart because it brought together independent restaurants in one place, and allowed me to make new discoveries that I hope to visit soon. It also brought a few surprises. The Elevator almost redeemed itself that night, as the couple of dishes they presented (Apricot-Fig Compote on a Pear Chip with Boursin Mousse and also Roasted Duck Confit with Grape, Cranberry Chutney and Port Wine Reduction) were nothing short of amazing – if only they could translate the dishes they offered that night onto their menu, I’d think about giving the restaurant a revisit.
If you’d like, you can watch the slideshow, or just see the detailed photos (with dish names and restaurants). And be sure to catch the event next year as well. It’s one that you don’t want to miss. And my apologies for getting this up so late.
