fun event!

any favorite dishes?

i thought that joe's grilled escolar with snap peas and and sriracha was a winner, as his dishes tend to be at food and wine events like these. the escolar was fatty and perfectly done.

i cant remember who served it but the burrata bruschetta was very tasty.

ciudads flank steak with avocado salsa was excellent.

kiriko did their blue crab handrolls which i asked for with little to know rice for obvious reasons!

i had about 5 oysters from watergrills station.

there were a lot of ceviche type options which were fine for the hot afternoon, especially the lobster salad in filo cup and jars lobster and mango in vinaigrette skewers

there were so many other dishes i cant remember all of them.

we ate so much and drank lots of tea, champagne, beer and wine and had a good fun time overall! tremendous value for 85 dollars!
